In 1971 at the Academy Award Show, Melvyn Douglas said, "High time we dedicated something to her. And so, to Lillian Gish who has touched all our lives with her gifts, her dignity, her funny little smile, and her immense invulnerability, the members of the Academy Award and millions and millions of people in the audience say, 'You have taught and keep teaching us that time is an ally, that laughter and tears co-exist, that your starring light is luminous and gentle, yet pierces the darkness.'....Come and get your long overdue Oscar, Miss Gish - Miss Lillian Gish - Miss Lillian - Lillian..."

That's one reason, I suppose. But I watch them because Pre-Hayes Code, some of the plots are mondo beyondo. And sometimes, terrific imagination. Check out Alraune with Brigette Helm some time. Wild premise. But I digress - I like silents for many reasons. And Lillian went through a lot of physical endurance. Way Down East - I thought she was going to float away from us forever. Filmed in one take! Several film crew staff died from pneumonia, incidenally. Lillian had great stamina. Acting for D.W. was not for the faint of heart!

Quick question to anyone out there - how did "Broken Blossoms" end? Did the pugilist father go to jail? Was justice served finally. (Probably not.)
