The White Rose (1923) is a silent D. W. Griffith production. The film was written, produced, and directed by Griffith, and stars Mae Marsh, Ivor Novello, Carol Dempster, and Neil Hamilton.
The film was shot in several locations throughout Florida and Louisiana. Though this film is extant it is one of Griffith's rarely seen films. According to film historian William K. Everson, a tinted and toned 35 mm nitrate print was allowed to decompose in the 1960s, leaving only a sole b/w dupe.
