Silent Film Star: Eleanor Boardman.

From the recently restored film directed by King Vidor and starring John Gilbert and Eleanor Boardman. This dreamy sequence, photographed by William Daniels.

Bardelys the Magnificent (1926) silent romantic drama film, based on a novel by Rafael Sabatini. It was the second film of the 19 year old John Wayne, who had a minor role.


  1. Wow - that outfit she is wearing standing on the stairs is vintage silent film! I'd like to see Bardelys the Magnificent. I'm a John Gilbert fan, and not being familiar with Eleanor Boardman, who like to see more of her work.

  2. Hey Becky, I also love the picture of Eleanor Boardman, standing on the stairs.
