The Famous Gish Sisters -- November 10, 2014

Moving Picture World, 07-November-1914

After leaving the Biograph, DW Griffith formed Reliance-Majestic with Harry Aiken. Griffith brought along most of his Biograph stock company, including Lillian Gish, "the most beautiful actress in America."

Lillian Gish "has been absent from Majestic features for two months, having been engaged during that itme in playing a leading part in Mr. Griffith's special production of The Clansman.  She will now appear regularly in Majestic releases."

I have mentioned before that I really like this photo of Blanche Sweet.

The only member of the "Famous Authors Whose Stories are Filmed By The Majestic Motion Picture Co." may be O Henry.

"The Famous Gish Sisters -- Lillian and Dorothy -- Appearing together for the first time in a Majestic release."  Appropriately, it was called "The Sisters."
