So many of the names and faces shown in this short narrated by Jimmy Fidler are completely unknown to today's film fans. Only the more prominent will be recognized immediately.
Among the more recognizable: Charlie Chaplin, Wallace Beery, Harold Lloyd, Mary Pickford, Lewis Stone, Ronald Colman (shown in 1923!), Conrad Nagel, Dolores Del Rio, Harry Carey, William Boyd, Rin Tin Tin.
Already gone at the time of this '38 short: Thelma Todd, Mabel Normand, Lon Chaney, Valentino, Will Rogers, Marie Dressler and Jean Harlow.
Talk about name dropping!
Summing up: Nostalgia for anyone interested in the earliest film stars.
