I'm glad she didn't! Her hair is so luxurious!

Marie Doro. She looks so... impish? There's something so unforgettable about her face. Reminds me a little of Kate Bush.

Yes, Marie Doro is very striking in all the photos I've seen of her.

I'm thinking there are no extant films of hers, but I could be wrong.

Of the 18 films she appeared in, only 5 are extant. The prints are held by the Library of Congress (save for Common Ground and The Heart of Nora Flynn; they are held by the British Film Institute and George Eastman House respectively). Sadly none are on home video.

What is she holding in the one picture? Is that an Oscar?

Edit: :oops: I looked again and think it's a mirror, actually.

Yes, it does look rather like an Oscar. It’s too bad none of her films are available.

I love that, too!!! The expressions are cute, back to back.
