In working previously on Valentino, I knew all too well primary source material would be hard to come by and direct testimony impossible since there is nobody left alive who knew him.
Dorothy Gish is a little different. She lived longer, into my own lifetime. She worked through the early 1960’s. I hoped and believed that there are a few people left who knew her, worked with her and would be willing to talk to me about her. I’ve had confirmation this morning that I’ve succeeded in finding my first direct link back to Dorothy.
Scheduling a telephone call next week! Excitement! Off to a great start!
