D. W. Griffith's Greatest Sensation -- January 9, 2022

Ogden Standard-Examiner, 01-January-1922

The Greatest Question was a 1919 movie, one of DW Griffith's Let's-Beat-the-Crap-Out-of-Lillian-Gish productions. Leading man Bobby Harron had died in 1920. The movie had something to do with spiritualism.

After the carnage of World War One, spiritualism became a popular topic, as it had been after the US Civil War.

The Fall of Babylon was reedited from Griffith's 1916 epic Intolerance. "To produce 'The Fall of Babylon' required the services of 125,000 people and 7,500 horses. Biggest picutre ever shown in Punta Gorda."

Way Down East, released in 1920, was still touring the country, doing land office business. I like the price correction in this ad.
