Three hours long, it starred Lillian Gish and was directed by D. W. Griffith. The movie was based on the book The Clansman and told the story of two families (one pro-Union and one pro-Confederate) and their relationship during the Civil War and Reconstruction. The KKK was shown as "a heroic force".

1936 - At the age of 39 years old, Beulah was alive when on November 3rd, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was reelected to a second term.
