Miriam Cooper (1891-1976) played "The Friendless One" in D.W. Griffith's monumental "Intolerance," 1916. Four stories from different historical periods were interwoven.
This vignetted close-up shot by Billy Bitzer is part of the then modern day story.
Griffith made "Intolerance" after being criticized for the offensive racism in "The Birth of a Nation."
The Babylon set was still standing in Hollywood in the early 1930's.
