NITRATE CLIPS #1.

PostSun Jun 18, 2017 9:51 pm

I picked up some nitratre film recently and am trying to identify who is in them. The first film has Cora Drew as the mother of "Middy" but I find no character named Middy in her IMDB filmography. The photos are on Flickr

Cora Drew is the older woman, does anyone recognize the other actors?

The Calendar Girl (1917). Juliette Day (Mildred Manning aka "Middy") , Cora Drew ( Mrs. Manning). See AFI Catalog page 117 for 1911-1920 . AFI has the whole description of this 5 reel comedy-drama. Clarissa Selwynne plays Madame Lizette. I think the gentleman with his arm around the girl with the hat on is Ashton Dearholt ( Phillip Gordon) and the other single photo of another person with a hat on is Lamar Johnstone (George Martin) or maybe these last two men I have mixed around.

Regards,
Dana

The man in the white hat looks like Bryant Washburn.
