To this very day the average cast is almost always Celtic.

Factor in Bollywood.

Lumberhead,

Watching something like “Birth of a Nation” would do more to just tick me off than anything else. Its a sign of how far we’ve come that such a film would cause outrage now. Its such disgustingly racist propaganda that I can’t really appreciate its artistic merits. I can see why we don’t celebrate 100 years in movies, given the fact that that was basically the first one.

So date it from this, 1 hour 11 minutes, 1911. It was re-issued a couple years ago, with a new soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. The restoration is very decent.

Too bad the article lost it’s footing by taking unwarranted shots at American Sniper.

Okay so it wasn’t really the first one. That would be a much better one that I probably could remember fondly. Thanks.

It may be 100 years since Birth of a Nation was released, but it’s not the first feature length film, not by a long shot. That’s attributed to an Australian film, the Story of the Kelly Gang. So that’s one reason that this year isn’t being treated as a particularly special anniversary.

And the Edison production company put together the Great Train Robbery in 1905, and that was only 11 minutes long (b/w and a silent movie).

Mind you, Birth of a Nation established many of the tropes that are common to films today so from a stylistic and technical perspective, it’s instrumental in shaping modern movies, but the subject matter was horrific.
