According to a 2002 article in the Los Angeles Times, the film facilitated the refounding of the Ku Klux Klan in 1915. Vachel Lindsay, a popular poet of the time, is known to have referred to the film as “art by lightning flash.” In his original compositions for the film, Breil wrote numerous leitmotifs to accompany the appearance of specific characters. Griffith’s father served as a colonel in the Confederate States Army and, like Dixon, viewed Reconstruction negatively. Griffith believed that a passage from The Clansman where Klansmen ride “to the rescue of persecuted white Southerners” could be adapted into a great cinematic sequence. Griffith first announced his intent to adapt Dixon’s play to Gish and Walthall after filming Home, Sweet Home in 1914.

I absolutely LOVED this story from the first fumbling teenage angsty pages to the brilliant ending. Till It Hurts had everything I love in a second chance romance. When it was being ugly, with all the hateful feelings and mean-spirited banter, it was also funny sometimes.
