by Edward Wagenknecht (Limelight Editions, 1997 (orig.
pub. 1962), 280 pages)
What makes this book unique is Wagenknecht lived through
the silent era and offers some very intriguing first person reminisces.
Also obvious in this book is the fact that Mary Pickford and Lillian
Gish are two of his favorites, plus ample space given to D.W.
Griffith. Well written, enjoyable to read.
