(scenario) (as Dorothy Elizabeth Carter) Lillian Gish ... (story) (as Dorothy Elizabeth Carter) Dorothy Parker ... (titles) "How would you like to direct Dorothy's next picture? ... You know as much as I do about making pictures" - D.W.Griffith "I had been allowed a 50.000 $ budget, but my money was running low. I knew it was imperative to complete the picture in order to save on the salaries extended over the holidays. Our last scenes were scheduled for two days before Christmas. They were to be taken atop a Fifth Avenue bus, as Dorothy looked down on a passing car that carried her husband and another woman. Then I discovered that in order to make films on the streets of New York, a permit was required. It would take several days to obtain a permit. Time was short. The alternative was running the risk of going to jail. "Will you take the chance?" - I asked my company. "Yes!" - they agreed. We went ahead. As we turned onto Fifth Avenue - seventh Street, heading south, a policeman looked at me standing by the camera, raised the hand to stop me - and looked again. Suddenly he put two fingers to his mouth, pushed up the corners in the smile I had made familiar in Broken Blossoms, and pointed to me as if to say, "am I right?" "Yes," - I nodded. He really smiled then and nodded back, "Go Ahead." (Miss Lillian Gish - The Movies, Mr.Griffith and Me) Dorothy Gish ...
