Most Spectacular Scene Ever Filmed: "Intolerance" (1916, D.W. Griffith) (video)

The "Babylonian Story" segment of D.W. Griffith's 1916 epic "Intolerance"...

...features the massive "Belshazzar's Feast" sequence.

It's one of the largest movie sets ever built.

The set extended back almost one mile.

Several thousands of extras were used.

The crumbling set towered over old Hollywood...

...until it was finally demolished in 1919. 

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
