The Lonedale Operator is a 1911 short drama film directed by D. W. Griffith. A print of the film survives in the film archive of the Museum of Modern Art. [1]

A close-up of a wrench, from the climax of The Lonedale Operator.

Among other things, the film is significant for Griffith's use of a close-up of a wrench, which a character had pretended was a gun. At the time of the film's release, close-ups were still uncommon. The Lonedale Operator illustrates Griffith's growing mastery of the medium.
