Fan Art of Silent Photoplay Actors

This is a cool etching from March 1913 Motion Picture Story Magazine. Alice Joyce by A. B. Shults. I like it not only because it is beautiful, but because it is by a fan who sent their art in at Alice Joyce's peak of popularity.

Re: Literature That Glorifies the Photoplay

This is the longest acrostic poem I have ever seen, I think! 4 lines for each letter in the words Picture Players. WHEW! This was in February 1913 Motion Picture Story Magazine.

Re: Silent Shorts

I must also mention Max Linder and his sophisticated comedic style for the time. I really like to see his manneirisms on screen.

Re: Silent Shorts

Ok, this is technically NOT a short film, but it is the first reel of a six-reel film called The Flying Ace (1926) produced by Norman Studios. I want to see the rest now!!!!!! , but I can't because it doesn't seem to be available in full online. It really looks like a most enjoyable film, and the ac...

I saw this going around on Twitter. It looks like a very interesting project. I'll admit that I don't recall the name of Alice Howell, and it would be great to see her work. She's adorable.
