The Hope Chest

Lobby Card for The Hope Chest

Lobby Card for The Hope Chest

Here is an absolutely charming lobby card from 1918’s The Hope Chest which was filmed in downtown Los Angeles at The Dutch Chocolate Shoppe.  The place, miraculously, still stands and is undergoing restoration.  The place is filled and themed with wonderful Ernest Batchelder tiles, some of which you can see behind Dorothy.  Sadly, yet another lost film and this co-starred Richard Barthelmess.

Work on Dorothy continues very, very slowly.  Life, of course, had gotten in the way, but I have begun 2014 with renewed vigour and continue to dig for everything I can find about Dorothy, her life and her films.
