No, I've never seen that one, either! That's a stunning photograph. The combination of soft focus and luminous glow it has is astonishing. I wonder how the photographer achieved that effect. Look at the collar on the left side.

Just now seeing the Houdini ad. That would be an interesting one to see. But hey, what's wrong with serials? :P

I don't know! Maybe people didn't want to wait to see what happened next!

A very classy photo. I found interesting Lillian's statement that she regarded Dorothy as a greater actress than herself because Dorothy could do comedy, and she felt that took more talent than doing tragedy.

Yes, Lillian adored her sister and always said that she was the better actress. Of course, Dorothy always said "Pish, Posh!" (Paraphrasing) in response to this.

I haven't seen this one. By the way, her birthday was earlier this month. Happy Belated, Mabel!

What was with photographers and silent film actors with their pets?
