Storyline

Gossip columnist Jimmy Fidler shows brief glimpses of over 60 actors and actresses, all of whom started in silent films. Some were stars in silents whose career faded with the advent of sound (e.g., Harrison Ford and Alla Nazimova; others were lesser players who made it big in sound films (e.g. 'Ronald Colman' and William Boyd). Fidler also looks at stars of that era who have passed away (e.g., Mabel Normand, Will Rogers, Lon Chaney, and 'Jean Harlow'). Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Trite little tribute gives a glimpse of a passing parade of stars...
3 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

So many of the names and faces shown in this short narrated by Jimmy Fidler are completely unknown to today's film fans. Only the more prominent will be recognized immediately.

Among the more recognizable: Charlie Chaplin, Wallace Beery, Harold Lloyd, Mary Pickford, Lewis Stone, Ronald Colman (shown in 1923!), Conrad Nagel, Dolores Del Rio, Harry Carey, William Boyd, Rin Tin Tin.

Already gone at the time of this '38 short: Thelma Todd, Mabel Normand, Lon Chaney, Valentino, Will Rogers, Marie Dressler and Jean Harlow.

Talk about name dropping!

Summing up: Nostalgia for anyone interested in the earliest film stars.
