Scott Lord Silent Film: A Romance of Happy Valley (D. W. Griffith, 1919)

One specific use of technique Griffith uses in the film to depict narrative is a cut back and forth within the scene to an inserted close shot to reveal the character’s thoughts of another person. Lillian Gish is seen in close up during the flashback soliloquy insert.
