Title: Babylon Scenes From Movie Intolerance (1916)
Post by: Karak Norn Clansman on October 01, 2018, 12:39:38 PM
The movie director D.W. Griffith's strange and highly expensive film Intolerance from 1916 is to date the only movie featuring independent Babylon that I know of. Fantastical sets. There are elephant sculptures in there for some reason, but overall it looks rather brilliant in black-and-white, or perhaps aged sepia.

Check out its Babylon scenes sometime for the visuals! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI871iS_gik) (The only Youtube videos with only-Babylon-scenes have atrocious video quality.)
