I have many favorite comediennes from the silent era, but Marion Davies is a special favorite — particularly in Show People and The Patsy — because seeing her best work came as such a pleasant surprise. Before I was able to view these films I’d encountered some negative feedback about her abilities, so it was a revelation to discover how gifted she was, and how funny she could be. In retrospect, I think the bad-mouthing came from people reacting to Davies’ unconventional private life. Who knows if they’d even SEEN her films? P.S. I do not have a Twitter account, so I am posting here to enter but cannot tweet the message.
Great point! Thank you so much for entering and Good Luck 🙂
Thanks so much. Got it!
My grandmother was an actress at Essanay Studio in 1917 and 1918. Her name was Lyda Dalzell (misspelled as Lydia). I would love to see a photo or the films she was in. My grandmother passed away in 1974 when I was 10 yrs old. I always heard Wallace Beery had a crush on her.
Oh my, that is wonderful! You may want to contact the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum in California. They might be able to help you. https://nilesfilmmuseum.org/
