Playbill for a production of The Family Reunion at the Phoenix Theatre in New York. LILLIAN GISH (1896-1993), born Lillian de Guiche, began her career as child actress "Baby Lillian" at the age of five. Lillian and her sister, Dorothy (1898-1968), who often toured with Lillian, made their film debuts (along with their mother, Mary Gish) in D.W. Griffith's film, An Unseen Enemy in 1912. Over the next several years, 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, Gish appeared in her first sound film, One Romantic Night (1930). Lillian, who was known as "The First Lady of the Silent Screen", 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. FRITZ WEAVER (1926-2016) won a Best Actor Tony and a Drama Desk Award for Child's Play (1970). He had already won a Theatre World Award, and had been nominated for a Tony earlier for The Chalk Garden (1955-1956). He earned an Emmy nomination for his role as Dr. Josef Weiss in the TV miniseries Holocaust (1978). Since the mid-1990s, he has performed mostly voice over roles, including many narrations for the History Channel. Weaver was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 2010. ERIC BERRY (1913-1993) is an English actor of stage and film, working primarily in theatre. His theatre career spanned 22 years and included 17 plays, with his final appearance being a starring role in Pippin (1972). Despite his small filmography, he has notable roles in the films The Red Shoes (1948) and The Edge of the World (1937). Corners and edges lightly worn. Lightly toned. Light surface creases.
