Silent Film Star: Dorothy Gish.

In Hearts of the World (1918), was Dorothy's first comedy role. Director Clifton, directed seven comedies with Dorothy that were so successful that they helped to pay for Griffith’s expensive epics.

Dorothy, specialised in pantomime and light comedy, while her sister performed in tragic roles. Some of her well known performances are: Our Hearts Were Young and Gay (1944), The Magnificent Yankee (1946), The Whistle at Eaton Falls (1951) and The Cardinal (1963).
