A Vitagraph reuninon of sorts but who's the lady

PostSun Jul 23, 2017 8:25 am

from l to r: Maurice Costello, ?__________, J. Stuart Blackton, Ben Turpin(didn't know he was at Vitagraph). This is from a blog on Maurice Costello linked below. Perhaps Mae Costello, but she died around 1929 or '30. Thanks

Ben Turpin was never at Vitagraph, it's just a bunch of old timers gathered together.

Your woman in question, Sepiatone, is Florence Turner. And no, as Mary said, Turpin did not work for Vitagraph. He entered movies with Essanay in 1907, then Laemmle's IMP where he worked with Mary Pickford among others, next Selig (working with Hobart Bosworth), a return to Essanay (working with Wallace Beery, Charlie Chaplin, etc), then Vogue Comedies before finding fame and fortune with Mack Sennett in 1917. The pose with Costello, Turner, Blackton, and Turpin is possibly at the premiere of Blackton's The Film Parade (1934), with a reunion of some of the first people of motion pictures.
