:) I am back after many log in issues for weeks on end. My thanks to the moderator for finally straightening this out. What is the deal with all the many spaces between my photos now? With the old set up you had no choice buut to use allot of spaces, because the picture underneath automatically hopped back up and there was no spacing between titles. Now that seems to have been resolved and we are left with a bunch of blank area where there is nothing? Unfortunately, there seems to be no way to edit those anymore? In any event, here is some new stuff I haven't posted before.

I LOVE John Gilbert. Lillian Gish, Richard Barthelmess, Ramon Navarro, Harold Lloyd, Greta Garbo - their faces are so expressive. There are many others, too.

Lew Cody and Renee Adoree - Vintage Multi-tinted Postcard! - 1925 - Sequence is from MAN AND MAID (1925). Based on the steamy novel by Elinor Glyn. It's hard for me to imagine sweet Renee in the role of a Husband Stealing Vamp! That's not the Renee I know! Even in THE PAGAN where she actually played a prostitute, she did not come off as being a bad girl.

I was very attracted to Edward Nugent, who played Freddie, a friend of Joan Crawford's (Diana) in one of her early silent films, "Our Dancing Daughters".

Most of my hundreds of photos, lobbies, posters and trade ad's can no longer be scene here. This is very discouraging. Anyway, will try to post some new stuff and see what happens?

Thanks, Lawrence. Not one my faves of her though. Here is where she got her plaything trinkets. I googled images of her and it is remarkable how little she is seen smiling. It might have been her shtick to effect that sad and pensive look. And something about her eyes. That far-off glazed look, so forlorn. Oh what's going on in that lovely head of yours?

The above reminds me of When A Man Loves, earlier in the film when she is especially bewitching.

 

I was going with a woman in the 70s, college years, who resembled Delores (didn't know it at the time) mightily and though I reached a point when speaking with her was a thing of a past, I desperately wanted to reach her and have her look at a photo and say to her, "Do you believe this?"

 

I didn't know she was married to JohnB.

Thanks for posting new ones Jeff!  Hope you're doing well.  I found this rare pic of Conrad Veidt in character for the play Salome (1921).  Since it's from getty I can only post the link.

I love Rudolph Valentino! Not only was Rudy super talented, but he was very handsome. I love how he made each character diverse in his movies; each performance was unique and distinguished.
