Bright Shawl candid photos

Unread post by silentfilm » Fri Jan 04, 2008 12:08 pm

Here's something really different, two snapshots taken by someone visiting the Bright Shawl (1923) set...

These are two different views of the same set. Various studio personnel are standing around watching each scene. That could be director John S. Robertson in the chair with his back to the camera in the second photo. Notice the chalk board in both shots. I'd love to know what was written on it. That is probably Richard Barthelmess and Dorothy Gish seated at the table in the top photo, and Barthelmess again seated at the table in the bottom photo with Anders Randolf standing at the table.
