As a young teen, I collected movie star photographs of the 30's and 40's. I sure wish I had them now because they were mailed to me and actually signed by the actual stars with a personal note added. I once had one of Wallace Berry! He was Long John Silver in Treasure Island. I recognized his face immediately in the movie I was watching this morning. Well the photographs are gone and I have no idea when, where, how or why I have them no more. Gone is gone.
Now, after some internet research, I have learned more about the movie that caused me to sit still for most of the morning.
You most likely, aren't interested at all in this, but I'll give out what I found anyway.
The Red Lily is a 1924 American silent drama film directed by Fred Niblo, starring Ramon Novarro, Enid Bennett and Wallace Beery.
Jean Leonnec (Ramon Novarro) and Marise La Noue (Enid Bennett) are pennyless lovers who eloped to Paris, she to become a prostitute known as 'the red lily', he to learn the ways of the underworld from Bo-Bo (Wallace Beery). 81 minutes
Ramon Novarro: He took the role of Hollywood's top Latin Lover following the 1926 death of Rudolph Valentino. (my note: VERY interesting personal life.)
