some silent film stills

Postby DickLindsay » Sun Jul 12, 2015 5:48 pm

Hello All:

Here are some terrific images which I thought you'd all enjoy looking at, from a large collection of silent films which I've recently purchased. Anyone recognize the actors or films? thanks!

number 1: Taylor Holmes portrait.

number 2: gal on right holding other womans hands is Blanche Sweet, I think this is THE SOWERS (1916).

number 8: Stuart Holmes on left, Richard Talmadge in middle, this is ON TIME (1924).

number 9: Guy on left is Thurston Hall.

number 14: L to R: Herman Hack, unknown, Blackie Whiteford, Paul Panzer (seated), Harry Cording, this is Dwain Esper's NARCOTIC (1933).


Thats all for now.

Richard, now that you have identified Thurston Hall I can definitely see his likeness in that still.
We tend to forget that those great character actors of the sound era were young once.

Looks (to me) like Doodles Weaver in the bowler.

#6 Ralph Graves and Gloria Swanson in Prodigal Daughters 1923- their only gig together.
I can't find any other images of Swanson with her hair up in this movie or in that winged dress, but of course she probably had 30 costume changes.
