* ValuesRessonace: Alternatively, the message that intolerance is bad still holds value today since multiple current human conflicts are essentially the result of intolerance.

Added DiffLines:

** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: However, the message that intolerance is bad still has its value even if it may seem obvious to us now. Keep in mind that people living in the time period of this film's production weren't exactly tolerant themselves.

* ValuesDissonance: Portions of the film are (arguably) not very accessible to modern viewers because, while this film (unlike ''BirthOfANation'') is not morally repugnant, it deals with periods in history that most people simply do not consider important anymore. The Babylonian segments, for example, might have held more appeal in an era when Westerners were still fascinated by antiquity (in Griffith's time, many schools still taught Latin and Greek), but most Americans raised in the late 20th or early 21st centuries will not know or care about the subject matter. Then there is the French subplot, which doesn't really connect with modern viewers (except perhaps in [[TheTroubles Northern Ireland]]) since the Catholic-versus-Protestant controversy of old, while still present to some extent, has [[DeadHorseTrope largely been replaced]] by the Christianity-versus-secularism dynamic today.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Griffith attempted to end the film on a glorious note with a special-effects shot of an immense cross of light appearing in the sky. Many contemporary viewers mistake this image for an atomic explosion.

* VindicatedByHistory: The film was such a failure at the box office that it bankrupted Griffith's studio. Today, it's considered to be one of the greatest silent films.
