MarazmatiqueA white man playing an asian by squinting his eyes looks even more ridiculous than blackface, somehow...
TheMajorNearly perfect acting. A tragic and emotional masterpiece.
To appreciate this movie, the viewer should be familiar with silent movies other than Chaplin or Keaton and consider the period in which this was made.
Some of the best acting performances I have seen in any picture from any era. The editing and Billy Bitzer's camerawork are very good as well.
A must-see for lovers of true sadness. This is how tragedy and emotions should be transferred to celluloid.
Don't watch it on archive.org, its quality is poor and it does not have a musical score, instead get the DVD released by KINO.com
spacew0manGreat portrayal of emotion and despair, awful portrayal of race. Like, I wonder if Mickey Rooney got the idea to squint from this movie.
TheMajorYea, that particular scene in The Shining was inspired by the closet scene in Broken Blossoms.
Fellini's La strada is also loosely based on this film.
EsnaiderThat scene in The Shining was inspired by the swedish The Phantom Carriage
demagogoI'm far from being the kind of guy who gets mad at first because something is racist, but this guy knows how to fucking get me. Yet I can't lie, the film was good.
DieguitoBeautiful masterpiece, incredible soundtrack!
greenhorgThis movie and The Shining are both famous for a similar scene.
LimbesdautomneWhen Griffith was a little boy, he directed bombastic historical frescoes, then, he realized that Lillian Gish's face was a far better epic shot.
