Abstract:Griffith’s reflections on the future of movies were published in 1924. Given that the full measure of Griffith’s time scale has yet to be achieved, it is difficult to resist the temptation offered by the eightieth anniversary to assess this vision of the movies against developing realities, not only for the light it casts on his reflections on film form and its contexts over the preceding decade of extraordinary growth but as a possible provocation for current practices.
