Weird facts of the silent screen

There was a lot of weird shit going on in the silent film era in Hollywood.

I’ll start. Tom Mix, cowboy star of the silent screen, was married five times. He had a daughter, Ruth, who was a cowgirl star of the silent screen, and was married … five times.

Doomed silent screen beauty Barbara La Marr who died of tuberculosis in 1926 at age twenty-nine was a favorite of LB Mayer, and he was a big supporter through her drug addiction and alcoholism. He named Hedy La Marr after her as a tribute.

Barbara La Marr had a young son at home at the time of her death who was taken in and raised by Zasu Pitts.

I've noticed that a lot of the actresses were dressed in sheer, slip like dresses. I don't like to think of what they had to do to get their jobs. They were probably poor and pretty.

Rumor has it that G’s first picture was a silent film, besides those porno reels she made with a donkey as a gift for Jack Warner.
