In an interview, Lillian Gish was asked how she felt about her starring in Birth of a Nation and her responce was something like this,  "As far as I was concerned,  I was committed to work and act the role I  was assigned.  I never thought once of quitting due to any controversy about race and I trusted that D.W. Griffith told his story honestly and truthfully as he could."  So go and argue with her now, she's buried in St. Bart's church in NYC.

She always seemed to be a gentle and kind person, committed to her work.  It is extremely disturbing to have her name removed from the theater.  She was one of our links from silent films to talkies.
