Happy Birthday Lillian Gish

Lillian Gish and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Inscribed Photo
Happy birthday to the "First Lady of American Cinema" Lillian Gish (1893 - 1993) whose film career spanned 75 years, from 1912 in silent film shorts to 1987. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this 8 x 10 inch color photograph of Lillian Gish and actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (1909 - 2000) at a party which has been inscribed by Gish to Fairbanks, "For my handsome Doug - With Love, Lillian." Gish is best known for her films in the 1910s and 1920s including Birth of a Nation, Broken Blossoms, and Intolerance. Crisp clear signature on a Near Fine photograph. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
