– You laugh at your flickers, Miss Gish. But you wouldn’t laugh at the Mona Lisa. 
– The Mona Lisa’s art. 
– My pictures are a new kind of art. Maybe more important.


Weaving together the heartbreaks and triumphs of the flawed genius director D. W. Griffith and the first movie stars Lilian Gish and Mary Pickford, a musical celebration of Hollywood's glorious era of silent film – beginning in 1912 when disreputable “flickers” are shown in fleapits and no self-respecting actor will appear in them, and ending in 1927 with movies now a glamorous, multi-million dollar industry and the first talking pictures signal the doom of silent films.
