"Intolerance" (1916) is a classic silent movie by D.W. Griffith. It interweaves four plot lines, each set in a different time. The first story is set in what was then the present day and pits a business man against his workers. The second story tells about the last days of Jesus Christ. The third story is set in ancient Babylon and tells of the fight between Prince Belshazzar of Babylon and Cyrus the Great of Persia. The final story is set in Renaissance France and of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, during which Catholics slaughtered the Huguenots.
