Scanned this myself from a 1928 book entitled Caricatures of To-Day. These panels are chock full of caricatures of your favorite silent players.

Martie,

:? Wonder why this isn't getting any responses here? Fabulous post! The guy was a terrific artist.

Martie,

I've been in Europe this past week (literally) so I'm catching up. I agree with Gagman about the lack of comments. On plate 113, the artist draws attention to the different color eyes of Colleen Moore - a neat highlight especially in b/w. Also, at Table 6, what might be called the European group, I didn't realize that Max Reinhardt and Lil Dagovar were in Hollywood in 1928. Did they make any films?

Well, i appreciate seeing it, i haven't seen that many caricatures of Norma Talmadge (and quite unflattering it is), and none previously of Joe Schenck. There's quite a crowd here!
