Olive Thomas

I have become rather fascinated by silent films lately. They have always intrigued me, but checking out Silent Portraits by Anthony Slide has really furthered my obsession.

One particular actress caught my eye, as her portraits are simply stunning, is Olive Thomas. She was married to Mary Pickford's brother for a time and died a tragic death. She seems to embody all the wildness of the 20s. She was part of the racy Midnight Frolic in NYC and went on to star in pictures before her demise. Isn't she lovely?
