Years ago I read in The Valley News, in the San Fernando Valley, that the 1936 MGM movie, SAN FRANCISCO, used different directors for different types of sequences. The reporter interviewed someone who had worked on that film. He said that all the scenes of the camping in the park, after the Earthquake, were directed by D.W. Griffith. A few of the wide scenes are really epic, with actors and tents going way off into the distance. Griffith is listed as a 2nd Unit Director on the film.
