Single-fold (4 pp.) prgram for the showing of D. W. Griffith's Birth of a Nation at the Cumings Theatre in Fitchburg, Massachusetts in 1918. The program has an old, mostly flattened, horizonatal fold through the middle along with other light, general wear and aging. The interior has the cast list and a discussion of the production. The back panel features ads for coming attractions. Nice local movie program which was controversial when it premiered and has become even moreso because of its glorification of the Ku Klux Klan and stereotypically racist depiction of African-American freedmen. ; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 4 pages
