Best Places for Research

Would anyone know of any places a researcher can go in LA to conduct research on silent film stars. Besides the Margaret Herrick Library and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Thank you.

Websites, Blogs, Search Engines

I was wondering if the moderators would look at adding a new category called websites, blogs and search engines for silent? There is so many talented people who have their own website, blog and search engines related to everything silent films/stars that it would be nice to know the location....

Library of Congress Collection

I am discovering they have quite a collection going but what is sad that allot of the papers require traveling to DC. Do you think they will ever digitize what they have? I am looking for anything on Natacha Rambova...

Re: New Book Reveals Princess Diana Was a Great Lover of Sil

Could you please advise what is the name of this new "book" that is being referenced? Also, I know for a fact Diana was not a fan of silent films.
