Stars of the Silent Photoplay

David B. Pearson and Graceann Maciolek over at Silent-Movies.Org, who recently brought to the web 1923's "The Blue Book of the Screen", have just compiled "Stars of the Silent Photoplay", an even more extensive exercise in gazing back to the motion picture publicity of yesteryear. Profiles and Portraits of over 600 actors, actresses, directors and producers . . . taken from the pages of "Stars of the Photoplay", "Who's Who on the Screen" and "Famous Film Folk" . . . on display of those simpler, but no less mean times, 1916 to 1930.

We here at "If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger . . . " heartily endorse this effort, congratulate Mr. Pearson and Ms. Maciolek on a job done prodigiously and recommend to all our visitors . . . particularly the Silent film fanatics who probably knew about this before I did . . . that they visit early and visit often.
