The Battle1911

  • 3.7
Unlike many of D.W. Griffith's early Civil War melodramas, THE BATTLE focuses on actual combat. A Union soldier panics during his first fight and flees to his girlfriend's house. She bullies him back into harm's way as the balance of war begins to shift. Dynamic battle scenes jammed with uniformed extras anticipate Griffith's subsequent spectacles, though the loving sketches of domestic rituals are just as much a hallmark of the director's mature style. - Max Goldberg

I can't help but consider how many Civil War veterans must have watched this film produced 40 years after the war. I wonder what they thought of it.

Silent but deadly!
