Contact Made!


I sent out some letters last week to follow up on leads for people still alive who worked with Dorothy. I just got a response back and it was a positive one. It’s not a lot of information, but, darn it, so nice to hear from someone who knew Dorothy.

I’ve also had another response, not much in the way of information, but there was plenty of encouragement, that’s something!

Thanks to a Sherlock Holmes that is a friend of mine. An amazing Sherlock Holmes! I’ve written to someone else that I hope will provide some wonderful stories and memories of Dorothy. Fingers crossed!!!

Color me hanging out by the mailbox holding my breath and waiting. Like those who come to Casablanca, they wait, and wait, and WAIT.

In other news, I’ve begun drafting the book proposal. Probably one of the hardest things to write, ever.

    There was an article in Charleston Magazine in May of 2003 that talked about Dorothy Gish in Charleston, SC in 1920 to film Little Miss Rebellion. There was also a photo of her on the set.

    Hey, thanks for the tipoff! I’ll have to see if I can hunt this piece down and check Newspaper Archive for any local reports in 1920.
