Allow me to introduce myself...

Hello there to all my fellow silent film lovers! My name is Jessica and I love silent films. Not only silent films, but the men and women who were the stars of the era. My favorites are Clara Bow, Buster Keaton, Olive Thomas, Louise Brooks, Theda Bara, Martha Mansfield, Rudolph Valentino...just to name a few.

The lives of these people intrigue me. Many of them faded into obscurity, such as Constance and Norma Talmadge. Others tragically died quite young, such as Florence La Badie, Clarine Seymour, Lucille Ricksen, and Olive Thomas. While some were lucky enough to find fame in the talkies, such as Joan Crawford and Greta Garbo.

I want to share information about these wonderful actors and actresses because they deserve to be remembered. Feel free to share your thoughts and favorites with me. I love meeting silent film fans!!
