I am searching for more paper dolls of silent stars. This example of Claire Windsor is from a July 1927 issue of Motion Picture Junior.

If you would like a scan of these dolls, I will be more than happy to email them to you. I just used these dolls to decorate a banquet table and thought they worked so well that I would look for more to used in a future display promoting silent movies in general. I appreciate any help in my search!

So far I have found eight free downloadable paper dolls of silent stars. Here is a link to the Edmonds Histoical Society and Museum site. They are found under thier "kids" section. I first saw these being sold on eBay, but found that they were in pulbic domain. Valentino, Talmadge, Moore and others are included.

I also discovered that "Woman's Home Companion" ran 66 paper dolls of silent movie stars beginning with Jackie Coogan in May 1925. Can anyone help me find scans of the set or at least an inventory of the stars depicted? Thanks!

 

By the way, does anyone know how to add pictures here?

Here is an update to what I have found. There was a series of 8 "Movy Dols" published in Photoplay beginning in June 1919 through January of 1920. Here is the announcement:
