This is a singlefold (4 pp.) program/handbill for the showing of D. W. Griffith's Intolerance at the Armory Theatre in DeKalb, Illinois. The program has light age-toning and some flattened creases at corners. There is also the old vertical fold through the center to make this a four page program. This copy is about near fine. The program is illustrated with photographs of scenes from the movie. Intolerance was produced by Griffith in response to the criticism of the racial implications of Birth of a Nation. This is an uncommon program. ; Sepia-Toned Images; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 4 pages View more info
