DW Griffith -- When the People Reach Out, BEWARE -- February 8, 2022

New York Evening World, 08-February-1922

I have not seen many full-page ads like this item for DW Griffith's Orphans of the Storm. Revolution was a hot topic in 1922.

Omaha Bee, 03-February-1922

Orphans of the Storm was adapted from an 1874 French melodrama, The Two Orphans, by Adolphe d'Ennery and Eugène Cormon. Griffith changed the title so people could not rerelease older versions of the story, such the one with Theda Bara.

The Fall of Babylon was reedited from Griffith's 1916 epic Intolerance.
