In the early 1900s, Villa, the enthusiastic Mexican revolutionary, was looking for a way to support his cause. Enter master filmmaker D.W. Griffith, who was trying to take cinema to a whole new level. The resulting partnership resulted in the film "The Life of General Villa” , a picture that bravely blurred the line between fiction and reality.
