LILLIAN GISH and DOROTHY GISH
Vintage photo, shown sharing a CBS microphone with Richard Barthelmess, inscribed by both acting sisters in person to collector Saul Goodman. Photos signed by both Dorothy and Lillian are rare and extremely desirable!
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/from/Dorothy Gish", "Every good wish/to you Saul -/Lillian Gish/1950". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signatures: September 22, 1938. LILLIAN GISH (1896-1993), the older of the Gish sisters, began her career as child actress "Baby Lillian" at the age of five. DOROTHY GISH (1898-1968), who often toured with her sister, and Lillian made their film debuts (along with their mother) in D.W. Griffith's film, An Unseen Enemy in 1912. Lillian, who is credited as being the first true actress for recognizing the crucial differences between stage and film work and delivering carefully crafted performances, would make a number of films for Griffith, including The Birth of a Nation (1915), Intolerance (1916), Way Down East (1920) and Orphans of the Storm (1922). In 1923, she went to MGM, where she made La Boheme and The Scarlet Letter (both 1926). In 1930, she appeared in her first sound film, One Romantic Night (1930). She was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for Duel in The Sun (1946) and received an honorary Oscar in 1970 for her contributions to film. Although Lillian was known as "The First Lady of the Silent Screen", Dorothy was an excellent actress in her own right, making more films than her older sister. She specialized in light comedy and pantomime. Lillian, who appeared appeared in her sister's directorial debut, Remodeling Her Husband (1920) concentrated on stage acting between 1927 and 1944, garnering 15 acting credits on Broadway in that time, and later made many guest appearances on television. Richard Barthelmess (1895-1963) was a leading man of silent films, co-starring with Lillian Gish in Broken Blossom (1919) and Way Down East (1920). Unlike the Gish sisters, Barthelmess was unable to sustain screen stardom after the advent of talking pictures. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Photographs signed by both Gish sisters are rarely encountered and extremely desirable. Notches at left edge. Toned. Corners creased and worn. Multiple surface creases. Mounting residue and ink stamps on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
