Episode #93 - "Way Down East"


In this episode, co-hosts Zach Betonte and Gary Sargenson discuss D.W. Griffith's iconic silent melodrama starring Lillian Gish, "Way Down East". The two debate the merits of Griffith's cinematic legacy, class relations within melodrama, and whether the film exists within a temporal or secular filmic space.
