Pictures: Douglas Fairbanks And Mary Pickford

While I'm working away on my essay about Mack Sennett and the Keystone Studios, here's a photo of fan favorites Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. I stole it from one of my favorite blogs, Pictures. It's in French but true to the blog's name, the pictures are wonderful.

The blog's author, Dsata, describes herself thusly: "Je suis une femme et je ne suis pas disponible."

Can't argue with that, even if I knew what it means.

I don't want to change the tenor of this oh-so-refined periodical, but I must confess:

All that Mary wore under that dress was her modesty.


If ya know what I mean. . . .

Thanks for helping me remember.
