Howard Missimer's Chats With The Players from January 1912. He was a weird fellow!

That's a really odd one! :shock: I wonder how much of that, if any, was put-on for publicity? I mean, eating candles? :)

probably all of it.... I'm fairly sure a lot of these chats were embellished!

Thanks for reading! I love digging up and remembering forgotten actors and using those chats to do just that.

For a moment, I was confusing her with Evelyn Nesbit. And then after seeing in the article, it clicked that I remembered seeing her name in association with Edison. I'm trying to figure out what film(s) I've seen her in; looking over her filmography (which is quite extensive), I don't see anything much that I recognize.

It is indeed an oddly short interview. I wonder if they ran out of space in that issue and had to truncate it??
