I've been busy working on the Great American Novel lately, so very little blogging, but here are two blogathons upcoming in November I can't resist: the Great Silent Recasting Blogathon (November 1-4) hosted by Carole & Co.; and the What A Character Blogathon (November 9-11) hosted by Outspoken & Freckled, Paula's Cinema Club, and Once Upon a Screen. In honor of the former, I'll be serving up posters for four modern movies I'd like to have seen made during the silent era; for the latter, three days of lists pertaining to my favorite silent character actors.
A couple of teasers, the first a movie I didn't include in the blogathon, Lillian Gish in Carrie, the second, my favorite silent actor who was quite a character but not a character actor:
The painting of Lillian Gish is by Paul Lovering. I added the drop of blood. The latter is Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., of course.
See you in November.
