Sadly and tragically so many of Dorothy’s films do not appear to survive. We’ll utilize this space for the odd little clip here and there.
This is a very short candid clip of Lillian and Dorothy Gish meeting Mary Pickford and her mother Charlotte Pickford. The gentleman walking into the frame and quickly exiting I first thought was Dorothy’s husband, James Rennie. Fairly certain he is not. What I love about this clip is the reactions of Lillian Gish and Mary Pickford as they realize the newsreel camera is rolling. Dorothy looks really cute, as usual.
