Lillian Gish
After recently discovering this silent film beauty and seeing that she does not have her own thread here I felt the need to make one. Lets just hope Im doing this correctly.





Born October 14, 1893 ,,her face was perfect for those black and white silent films. She clearly was born in the right era.

Thanks for starting the thread!

She was the epitome of a silent film actress Even her puny lips alone are iconic!

Awww, what great images. She was one of the very first "It" girls. This is "The Mothering Heart", c. 1913.
