David Llewelyn Wark "D. W." Griffith was born in LaGrange, Kentucky. He was an American film director, mostly remembered as the director of the 1915 film The Birth of a Nation and the subsequent film Intolerance. Griffith began making short films in 1908, and released his first feature, Judith of Bethulia, in 1913. His film The Birth of a Nation made pioneering use of advanced camera and narrative techniques, and its immense popularity set the stage for the dominance of the feature-length film in the United States. He began his creative career as a playwright but met with little success with only one of his plays being accepted for a performance. Griffith then decided to become an actor, and appeared in many plays as an extra.
