    He frequently portrayed Nazis.
    He appeared in D.W. Griffith's racist film 'Birth of a Nation (1915).'
    He made up pretentious stories that he was a rich German nobleman.
    He was an extravagant director whose films often ran over length and over budget.
    The rough copy of his film 'Greed' ran over eight hours.
    When it was cut to a more manageable length, he fumed, 'The man who cut my film had nothing on his mind but a hat.'
    He was said to be a loving father.
    He broke two ribs in an accident during filming of 'Birth of a Nation.'
    He was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in 'Sunset Boulevard.'
    He was more concerned with creating art than commercial successes.
    His directorial masterpiece, 'Greed,' is considered a milestone in American cinema.
