Here is one of my favorites of Lillian Gish. She is signing autographs on the set of Annie Laurie.

And look at the adoring expression on the taller girl's face. :) By the way, I really like that Tam O'Shanter Lillian avatar—very classy.

I've got to get off this forum and get ready for church. I'm like a kid in a candy shop. :lol:

I think this is a really cool picture of Francis X. Bushman. This is from Motion Picture Story, 1912.

That is a nice one. On Lea's Silentology Blog, she recently posted a picture of Buster Keaton laughing - - - a rare one indeed! I thought it was pretty cool.

Eek! I didn't realize how huge that Buster picture had come out. Kind of frightening! :lol:
Well here is a lovely picture of Lillian that was brought to my attention by dachshundonstilts.

Beautiful portrait. For a slight change of pace, how about this one of Lillian? I have no idea what role she may be portraying here.
