"Silent Portraits: Stars of the Silent Screen in Historic Photographs"

by Anthony Slide (The Vestal Press, Ltd., 1989, 278 pages)

Although the "reading" part of this book is minimal, it is a treasure trove of wonderful portraits of the silent stars from the bit players to the superstars. Over 500 stars are represented in the book along with birth and death dates, a brief sentence or two about the star and a few of his or her features listed. Unfortunately, the book just makes you want more information, particularly on those stars for whom so little information is available from any published source. However, the high quality photos are worth hours of browsing.
