Biography | show moreshow less
LILLIAN GISH (1896-1993), the older of the Gish sisters, began her career as child actress "Baby Lillian" at the age of five. 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.
