Facinating Film Actresses

 As a reader of my blog, you know that I love all things vintage! 
I love collecting old pictures of people from another era, especially  photos of women and children. I can spend hours online looking at beautiful portraits of forgotten actresses and celebrities from the days of silent films, and early Hollywood. 

Here are some of my favorites:

Maude Fealy -(1883-1971)
American Actress from 1900-1958

The Fairbanks Twins, Marion (1900-1973) and Madeline(1900-1989).
Born in New York, these ladies were stage and motion picture actresses in the silent film era.

Louise Brooks, 1906-1985. An American dancer and film star, that made the bobbed haircut popular in the 1920's.

Olive Thomas, (1894-1920), was an American actress and model, and popular Ziegfield girl. She married Mary Pickfords younger brother. She died tragically at the age of 25, in Paris, after accidentally ingesting bi-chloride of mercury, from a French labelled bottle in a darkened bathroom, believing it to be another medication.

 Lily Elsie- (1886-1962)
A beautiful English Edwardian actress and singer, that was a child star as well as a famous adult celebrity. Sadly, she suffered many mental health issues later in life.

 Mary Pickford, (1892-1979), Well known Canadian actress that was known as Americas Sweetheart.

 Lillian Gish-(1883-1993), An American Screen and television actress. Her career spanned 75 years, appearing  in silent movies,  films, and later in TV. She was 99 when she passed away in her sleep of heart failure.
