Definitely! I've seen polls on Twitter asking which is hotter, and Mr. St. John has been on them before. 😁 Such a cutie.

How about that...he looks so young here.

I love that one of Mae Marsh—probably my favorite silent actress of them all. She photographed beautifully in stills and on film. Her face could convey such a variety of emotions so powerfully.

Here's Marguerite Courtot (pronounced cor-toe). I've always loved this particular photo of her; she looks so determined :)

If anyone's interested in reading up on her, I found this pretty in depth online biography.

That is a striking portrait. She owns the world. :D

Here is an interesting one of Mabel. There appears to be an airplane (or rather "aeroplane") behind her, so I thought this might be from A Dash Through the Clouds (1912), but apparently it's not. The hair and clothing are different.
