I'm 32 years old, a lover of silent films, especially The Great Lover himself, Rudolph Valentino. I've always been fascinated with death and somewhat with cemeteries since I was a little girl. I enjoy coming to this site and visiting all the famous and non-famous internments here.|

|Bob Marlowe||Wallace Reid|
Suggestions for improving Mr. Reid's bio are in parentheses:
but his real love was(but his real loves were) writing and directing. But(,) because of his striking good looks and athletic abilities, he was put before the camera. For more than a decade(Over a period of more than a decade) he appeared in over(more than) a dozen films for many studios and quickly became a matinee idol. In 1913 Wally married Dorothy Davenport, an actress. She was only seventee(seventeen), but already a veteran of the stage and screen. Their marriage was a happy one,(delete comma) and a son was born in 1917 named Wallace Reid, Jr. They also adopted a girl, Betty, in 1922. While making "The Valley of Giants" in Oregon in 1919, Wally was involved in a train accident and severely injured. The doctors gave him morphine to deal with his excruiating (excruciating) pain. After he was released from the hospital, he was still in alot (a lot) of pain,
On January 18, 1923, Wallace Reid died in his wife's arms. She never remarried. For the rest of her life Dorothy campaigned for the increased awareness of drug addiction,(insert a space here)and the terrible toll it takes on families and society. (bio by: Marta Monk)
|Kevin Mannara||Louise Brooks|
I thought you might be interested in this new book featuring Louise Brooks.
|marylinusca||Re: Jack, Mary, Lottie Pickford|
Good job on the Pickford family. They were born John, Gladys and Charlotte Smith. [John and Charlotte after their parents. I don't know who Gladys was named after, if she was named after anyone.] Do you think that their birth names should be added to their biographies?
I send you two urls of "Mary Pickford in Toronto interest."
|Paul Monaghan||Re: Louise Brooks.|
You did a good bio on Louise Brooks - I once talked with Kenneth Tynnan about Louise, he always called her Lulu. He had interviewed her a number of times he thought it sad she had never found someone to share her life with, but he said she had a wicked sense of humour; but Kenneth did like her.
|Kelt Smith||LIONEL BARRYMORE|
Did you know that on LIONEL BARRYMORE you listed his birthday as having been
APRIL 12th on the vitals and then wrote that it was
APRIL 28th as being his birthday in the bio you created ?
I believe that APRIL 28th is generally considered to have been the correct date. I thought that you might want to correct it.
New Brooksie fan. Enjoyed your bio of her.
Do you have your own opinion of what
"made her tick"? Just finished the
mine is there on the page. Will email you.
I think you disappeared for awhile cause I sure searched for you. Hope you're doing well. Are you still in England?
Things are good here - recovering from Hurricane Ike. We got hit hard. No more hurricanes for Texas for a long long time. I hope.
Do you have my email address?
I've searched for you from time to time. Hope you're doing well.

"...The end came in January 1837 when was found dead in her home in due to starvation."
By the way, I read your entree on Olive Thomas Pickford. It was sad, but fascinating. I assumed she was sister-in-law to Mary Pickford. Great work, Marta.
