| Great Short Sample of Great Zasu Pitts in Action
Zasu Pitts was a phenomenon. Just look at her Biography in IMDb.com! Her talents were legendary. She was equal parts tragedienne and comedienne. Today is hardly seen or heard.

Therein lies one of the great tragedies of the silver screen whether silent or talking.

Zasu's acting can be said to be one of the most naturalistic seen on the screen. It's a nuance that has to be seen to be understood and appreciated. She makes every other actor seem as if they are doing only one thing: acting.

It has been said that she stole every scene she was in. Even in this innocent tale of two women during the Big One, Zasu's inimitable charm comes through in every scene.

If it doesn't hit you after seeing this 21-minute short, keep looking for Zasu and you'll see what I mean. After it hits you I know you will wonder why she isn't better known or revered today. I know I did.
