Personality-Focused Websites

Unread post by Mike Gebert » Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:13 am

At least two people who've registered so far maintain websites devoted to a single personality of the silent era, and there are many others, no doubt. I thought it might be good to make a comprehensive list of links (the names below are all clickable). Here's a few, feel free to add ones you know about.

Rudolph Valentino (Rudyfan)

Ronald Colman (Danninx)

Lon Chaney (Jon Mirsalis)

Colleen Moore
