Also looked at Viola Dana, Mary Miles Minter...

A lot of actresses started their career later, after the copyright deadline date of 1923: Myrna Loy, Marcellie Day, Barbara Kent, Louise Brooks. Anna May Wong, Boris Karloff, Constance Bennett and Esther Ralston made only a couple films before that date: most of them lost.

Maybe a William Desmond Taylor feature not listed on Wikipedia?

My initial search list (from a few years ago) netted some possibilities. I have not gotten specific info on them. But Elaine Hammerstein, Shirley Mason, Enid Bennett, Alma Rubens were among the "names," though not sure how much interest there'd be.

I have a few more on the list I'll check this week. Even meeting all the basic criteria, you still don't know until to check specific titles with Rob Stone or Rosemary Hanes to check on donor restrictions, language, what shape the films is in, etc.

The IMDb still has it that "The Love Special" seems to be lost.

Should have new music score from David Drazin, largely based on my original music, today. So I should have everything uploaded to Pressing Media for production. My hope is to have this mailed before Thanksgiving but I kinda doubt it'll move that fast.

All the proofs are okayed so now await production. Hoping to have finished product in mail before Thanksgiving, but that depends on actual production and shipping.....

I was cataloguing my DVD collection over the weekend and realized that I've amassed a nice little collection of Marion Davies thanks to Ed and Ben. Well done, since I had precious little with her before.
