Happy Birthday THELMA HILL

PostTue Dec 12, 2017 5:23 pm

Today, December 12, is the birthday of one of my favorite silent actresses - Thelma Hill. She started her career as a Mack Sennett Bathing beauty and appeared in more than 100 films including Hoboken To Hollywood and Two Tars. She also starred in the Toots & Casper movie series. Sadly Thelma battled alcoholism and died young in 1938.

Thelma has been forgotten by most movie fans but she really was a delight to watch. You can learn more about her here ... https://thelmahill1938.blogspot.com/

WOW! Happy Birthday, Thelma! Thanks for reminding us, Rocky!

Coincidentally it's also the birthday of Mack Sennett's Pathe Vamp, MADELINE HURLOCK! Also known as Mrs. Robert E. Sherwood, she would have been 118 if she were still with us, but her films always will. RIP girls, and Happy Birthday.

OOPS! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NITRATEVILLE!
