"Sunshine Sue" is a short drama directed by D.W. Griffith.  The film is included in our program to illustrate the work of two of our stars: actor Robert Harron and cinematographer Billy Bitzer.


A country girl follows a city suitor, but is left alone and must fend for herself.

We trust that silent film lovers will not judge harshly the quality of the print.  Many early D.W. Griffith films are only available in a paper print format, and we are all very lucky that they have survived the trials of time for us to enjoy.
