Re: Favorite photos of silent stars

I’ve probably said this before, but I’ve always found those photos or films of the inside of a theatre of the period to be interesting. We’re watching them watching them—and it’s almost like you can experience what it was like to be there.

Re: Favorite photos of silent stars

A scene from Mabel's Dramatic Career (1913). Mack Sennett and Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle watch Mabel's screen performance from the audience.

Re: Sherlock Holmes (1916)

Nice bit of work! That really makes the silent film come alive! William Gillette certainly seems to have made a good Holmes.

That is so cool! Pertwee had the same haircut that my husband's grandma has.

Re: Favorite photos of silent stars

One of my favorite shorts is Fatty and Mabel Adrift (1916), in which Fatty and Mabel's house floats out into the ocean. Someone posted a great behind-the-scenes photo on Marilyn Slater's Mabel page. Here is a screenshot I made from the film—followed by the behind-the-scenes look.

Re: Magazine Ads

Another UK cereal apparently, as Dr. Who wasn't being shown back when Pertwee was the Doctor. He's not "Dr. Who," though, but just "the Doctor." And Jon Pertwee wasn't that ghastly looking. See photo. :) Cool badges, though.

Re: Unbelievable Ads

:lol: You know it crossed my mind this afternoon "I wonder is this is fake"...nah, no way, it looks too real. Oh, well... :D That's a really clever job of photoshopping. And with some of the concoctions they attempted to sell back then... I wouldn't have been too surprised if there was such a thing....
