Silent Film Star: Edna Purviance.

Personal Quote:

"Mr. Chaplin asked me if I would like to act in pictures with him. I laughed at the idea, but agreed to try it. I guess he took me because I had nothing to unlearn and he could teach me in his own way. I want to tell you that I suffered untold agonies. Eyes seemed to be everywhere. I was simply frightened to death. But he had unlimited patience in directing me and teaching me."


  1. Ah Edna! The great mystery of silent film. Love her unconditionally!

  2. FlickChick, One of my favorite things to post are these little silent film snippets.
