1919 - Broken Blossoms

In our very first episode we watch and discuss Broken Blossoms, a silent-era film produced and directed by the legendary D. W. Griffith (The Birth of a Nation, Intolerance) and starring one of the very first megastars, Lillian Gish.  Topics of conversation include: closets, child abuse, and the apparent implied racism of the day. Movies of this era are in the public domain and are generally available to watch for free on YouTube — check it out here.  Please enjoy.
