Intolerance and its terrible effects are examined in four historical eras. In ancient Babylon, a mountain girl is caught up in the religious rivalry that leads to the city's downfall. In Judea, the hypocritical Pharisees condemn Jesus Christ. In 1572 Paris, unaware of the impending St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, two young Huguenots prepare for marriage. Finally, in modern America, social reformers destroy the lives of a young woman and her beloved. Written byErik Gregersen <email@example.com>Actors:

"I saw a four hour, ten minute version of this as the University of Chicago's Ida Noyes Hall in February, 1993 -- restored with stills and copyright photos, with a new score by Gillian Anderson, featuring the composer conducting the University Symphony Orchestra -- what an experience!And where, oh where, is this restored version to be seen today?Somebody get on the copyright owner's case to release the 4:10 version, with Gillian Anderson's score!This fine film, possibly the quintessential Griffith, has been in the shadow of the notorious Birth of a Nation too long"
