Babylon Scenes From Movie Intolerance (1916)

Post by Karak Norn Clansman »

The movie director D.W. Griffith's strange and highly expensive film Intolerance from 1916 is to date the only movie featuring independent Babylon that I know of. Fantastical sets. There are elephant sculptures in there for some reason, but overall it looks rather brilliant in black-and-white, or perhaps aged sepia.

Check out its Babylon scenes sometime for the visuals! (The only Youtube videos with only-Babylon-scenes have atrocious video quality.)

Wow - they went to a lot of work to build that - impressive.

I love this old style work - lately i have been researching old drawings for a project I have been working on - there is some truly amazing work
