Movie Info

Filmed in a fast five days, The Battle of the Sexes was D. W. Griffith's first production after breaking loose from his Biograph contract. Adapted from Daniel Carson Goodman's play The Single Standard, the film stars Lillian Gish as a proper young lady who is shocked by her father's infidelities. Going to the other woman's apartment for a showdown, Gish is confronted by the woman's partner in crime, a slick confidence man. The father realizes the trouble he's caused by his extramarital affairs when Gish falls in love with the crook. A more lighthearted version of Battle of the Sexes, also directed by Griffith, was filmed in 1928. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

  • The story is a familiar but intimate tale vividly illustrated on the screen. Griffith keeps it alive every moment.
