In the motion picture production of 'Way Down East,' David W. Griffith spent ten months to take the scenes. Moreover, the producer has followed closely the original stage drama tale of Lottie Blair Parker and Joseph R. Grismer, and the elaborations occur in the visualising the big scenes. It is observed that enthusiastic throngs of prominent people flocked to the Forty-fourth Street Theatre in New York City for the premier showing there and paid as high as ten dollars for a single seat.
