  • What a wonderful person she was. Everyone who hasn't seen "Night of the Hunter," which she is in, just has to see it. I worked with someone who met her, and he told me she was just a delight.

  • 📃🧚‍♀️Respect and honour for a great woman who contributed made masterpieces pictures and contributed change old woman's role with her work . Everybody can see her biography to watch the list of her movies.

SHE HUMBLY ASKED IF I HAD ROOM FOR HER TO SLEEP IN HER HOTEL HAD HAD A MIX UP….NOT ONLY DID LILIAN SLEEP IN MY HOME SHE SLEPT IN MY BED. I SLEPT IN THE COUCH THE NIGHT….LILIAN IS A REAL TROOPER…..I STROKED HER HAIR GENTLY AS SHE SLEPT AND STOOD OVER HER WITH MY LILIAN GISH POSTER AND I REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT GIVING HER A SMALL KISS….WELL JUST AS I WAS LEAVING LILIAN PULLED AT MY ROBE GRABBED ME AND GAVE ME THE MOST PASSIONATE MOST SINCERE MOST BEAUTIFUL KISS…..WELL RIGHT THEN AND THERE I WAS PUTTY IN HER ARMS….A WOMAN LIKE ME WITH A WOMEN LIKE LILIAN WHO WAS 40 YEARS MY SENIOR….THERE IS NO SHAME TO SAY I WAS A CASUALTY TO LILIAN'S BEAUTY…AS I PULLED HER SLIP OVER HER AND WE MADE PASSIONATE LOVE. LILIAN HAD BEEN GARBO'S BUT FOR THAT NIGHT SHE WAS MINE. OH LILIAN WILL YOU EVER FORGIVE ME FOR THOSE THINGS I MADE YOU DO?

  • They gave her so much more respect than Mary Pickford. It's sad, because though Lillian had a longer career, Mary did so much for a woman of her time. For anybody, male or female.

  • And now, like Kate Smith, she and her sister (by virtue of simply being her sister) have been trashed by the "educators" at Bowling Green State. This is an epidemic of idiocy!

  • The way they do the special Oscars now, we'd have seen but not heard a 5 second clip of her accepting the award in a separate, non-televised dinner.

  • Dear Lillian….The Silent Era lasted just over 20 years….and yet produced a host of unique and highly talented actors ………Lillian Gish…..Mary Pickford……Rudolph Valentino…….Douglas Fairbanks……Harold Lloyd…….Gloria Swanson……Roscoe Arbuckle…..Lon Chaney…..Theda Bara……Charles Chaplin….
    William S Hart……Harry Langdon…….John Gilbert……Clara Bow……Buster Keaton
    Mabel Norman…….Tom Mix……Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy……
