Olive Borden IS John Ford

Pictureplayer magazine got several leading ladies to drag up as their directors, a thing not often enough done. Olive Borden had just experienced John Ford’s little ways in THREE BAD MEN.

Nobody ever does Fred Niblo. I’m impressed.

Bebe picks the wrong DeMille brother, from History’s viewpoint, though maybe not Art’s.

I’m not 100% sure the skirt is authentic. William DeMille said, “Cecil has a habit of biting off more than he can chew, then chewing it.”

This obscure choice may be why we don’t hear so much about Dolores.

Marvelous. Should really be a cigar, though, right?

  1. Johan Schuurbiers Says:

    “Should really be a cigar, though, right?“ But it is, isn’t it?

  2. You are correct. Bleary early-morning eyes read the highlight along the right of the cigar as being a single white cigarette. Never try to categorize smokes at 7.30 am.

  3. Of course it would have been REALLY good if they’d had Mae Marsh doing Erich Von Stroheim, but The Merry Widow hadn’t been made yet.
