Hollywoodland

mortisia:

Olive Thomas (October 20, 1894 – September 10, 1920) was an American silent film actress and model. Thomas began her career as an illustrators’ model in 1914, and moved on to the Ziegfeld Follies the following year. During her time as a Ziegfeld girl, she also appeared in the more risqué show, The Midnight Frolic. In 1916, she began a successful career in silent films and would appear in over twenty features over the course of her four year film career. She married actor Jack Pickford, the younger brother of silent film star Mary Pickford, in 1916.
On September 10, 1920, Thomas died of acute nephritis in Paris five days after consuming mercury bichloride. Although her death was ruled accidental, news of the incident and Thomas’ subsequent death were the subject of media speculation. Thomas’ death has been cited as one of the first heavily publicized Hollywood scandals.

where did you watch 'the devil makes three'? it's so impossible to find!

I bought the DVD from the Warner Archive site during their 5 DVDs for $50 sale. $10 per DVD isn’t too bad a price considering how expensive Warner Archive movies can be. The sale’s not going on anymore, but they repeat the sale every few months, so if you keep your eyes open, you can get it for a pretty decent price.

Lock me in your arms forever
That’s the place I want to be
So anyone can see
That I belong to you
And you belong to me

There isn’t a day in my life that I don’t think of my partner. Not a day. Never. I don’t have any qualms about proclaiming the love I had for my partner. Every time I walk on a stage I know it’s because of him and what he did to get me there. It’s a constant appreciation and a gratitude to a man that I can’t communicate with but I just hope he’s peeking in, listening and knowing how much I care and how much I miss him. - Jerry Lewis

The dilemma for Anna May Wong was increasingly obvious. Despite her triumph in The Thief of Bagdad and continued good reviews in mediocre productions, her career was stalled in Hollywood. True, she was now a staple in movie magazines, with full-page spreads appearing regularly. But her chances of moving up from supporting or featured player to star were improbable. Production codes against interracial kissing meant that she could not graduate to star billing, even in films with Orientalist themes. Rather, she had to watch as less talented white women took the roles that might have given her more fame, and at least more sympathetic parts. Despite her great beauty, she was cast as a prostitute, an opium dealer, or simply as insignificant color. Her final scenes featured suicide by knife or death by overdose of opium.

there’s a “photo” going around of Emma Watson wearing a dress that is see-through at the top, showing her breasts, and because apparently literally nobody fact-checks or uses google, people are taking it for granted that it’s real and reblogging it.

i get that the way it’s being framed on tumblr is as a woman taking back her right to her body and her sexuality and as a response to 4chan threatening to release nude photos, but in reality it’s literally the opposite. it’s something some gross misogynistic asshole with too much time on his hands made in photoshop with the intent of humiliating and violating a woman.

please don’t reblog it, don’t contribute to it, and if you see people reblogging it, let them know.

Charlie Chaplin in a rarely seen footage of what might have been a precursor (or rehearsal) to the 1918 never-released film How To Make Movies.
