76. Salomé (1923)

Today I'm going to shine a light on Nigel De Brulier, one of my big silent screen heroes.
Here's a page dedicated to him, go take a look.

I have a picture of Oscar Wilde tattooed on the back of my neck

Vyvyan Holland was born Vyvyan Wilde, the son of Oscar Wilde

Rose Dione (48) as Herodias, Salome's mother

Alla Nazimova (44) as Salome

Arthur Jasmine (spelled as Jasmina in the credits) & Earl Schenk

....and Nigel (46) as Jokanaan (John the Baptist)

he was so beautiful


Directed by Charles Bryant

75. The Goose Woman (1925)

I've missed Jack Pickford. Good thing I found this film.

Louise Dresser (47) was convincing and strong as the main character, The Goose Woman (aka Mary Holmes/Marie De Nardi)

Jack Turned 29 in 1925.
He starred as Gerald Holmes, the (illegimate?) son of a former superstar

Constance Bennett (21) was quite a beauty.
She played Gerald's fiancee, Hazel Woods.


Directed by Clarence Brown
