A GRIFFITH BIOGRAPH COLLECTION FEATURING MARY PICKFORD Volume One Here is the first volume of 12 great films directed by D.W. Griffith from 1909 to 1913, considered by many to be his most creative period. Covering a wide range of topics, these short gems present us with everything from lessons in morality to young women in mortal danger!

THE HOUSE WITH CLOSED SHUTTERS (1910) starring Henry B. Walthall, Dorothy West and Grace Henderson. Directed by D.W. Griffith. A young man joins the Southern army during the American Civil War and is the heroic pride of his adoring mother and sister.

It is up to his sister to disguise herself in her brother's uniform and go to war to save the family's honor! WILFUL PEGGY (1910) starring Mary Pickford, Henry B. Walthall and Clara T. Bracy. Directed by D.W. Griffith. A high born Lord takes a fancy to young Peggy and decides to have the headstrong girl for his bride.

FOR HIS SON (1912) starring Charles Hill Mailes, Charles West and Dorothy Bernard. Directed by D.W. Griffith.
