Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Silent films/actresses week, yay!And happy Saturday to all.
Joe,Nice observation, but do you have an entry for the contest?PJM
Well, Mr. PJM, I think it's a person with the initials DB, but as I'm not the ENM, 3 in a row seems selfish.
And good morning, Nate, if you're around.
Joe,I will not comment unless you officially make an entry.PJM
Mr. PJM, I have noticed that once the mystery person is correctly identified, the comments dwindle. And since the comments this week have been somewhat sparse, I don't want to trigger a comment alert.
maryjane,No, it is not Madge Evans.PJM
Joe,On a couple of days, we were getting close to a picture embargo.PJM
I'm going to throw Fanny Brice into the mix
I will say it is Clara Bow. The eyes are similar.
Mr. PJM,How is Miss EAM's fund-raising coming along?
She is pretty, whoever she is.
RTD,Not Fannie Brice.PJM
Marie,Not Clara Bow.PJM
Joe in NC,Thank you for asking about the lovely Miss EAM. Last weekend went very well between the Church she visited, and the generosity of people on this site. The is getting close to 1/2 of her $5,000 need. The $5,000 would cover travel to and from Kenya, and living expenses for 6 months, plus medical equipment for the clinic.Thanks,PJM
I'll give it one more try with Olive ThomasWhere are all your loyal followers? Elizabeth could use a little more help. I tried to do my part. Come on guys a few bucks won't break you. You don't have to give till it hurts, just give a little. A few bucks for every one would put her well over the top.
RTD,It is not Olive Thomas.Thank you for your generosity on supporting the lovely Miss EAM's nursing mission to Africa. PJM
FOLKS!I have to run to town to the grocery store. I will check on the contact when I return.PJM
Could it be, Jobyna Ralston
Yay, over 20 comments! No picture embargo today.
It is not Lillian GishIt is not Jobyna RalstonIt is not Mary PickfordThe game continues.PJM
Dorothy Bernard,Been lurking decided to play.
Sheldon, Dorothy Bernard it is, good job.
I'll give it a try. Is it Marion Davies?
A quote that is attributed to Dorothy Bernard, silent screen actress, is "Courage is fear that has said its prayers."I think that Miss EAM shows courage in her commitment to spend half a year in Africa - FOR NO PAY - nursing for orphans (and, I'm sure, others).If you haven't, you should consider contributing to her "adventure"; see the Domestic Update of last Sunday 17 July.
Sheldon is the winner!It is Dorothy Bernard, silent screen actress.PJM
Such glorious hair! And a very pretty lady.
Congratulations, Sheldon! And also to Joe. Good work!
Dorothy reminds me of Drew Barrymore a little. Any connections for anybody else?
