Actor Life For Me 2

Called “the first lady of the silent screen,” Lillian Gish was the archetypal silent film heroine — the delicate damsel in distress, stranded on a swift-moving ice floe, cowering before a sadistic brute. The film showcases generous footage of her most memorable performances.

In this Emmy-award winning documentary, the celebrated actress reflects on her life and work spanning the 20th century, particularly her years as D.W. Griffith’s favorite leading lady and collaborator.

    1. I’m afraid there is no free version available like Youtube. On Vimeo (the trailer linked to this article) they have links for renting or purchasing this documentary. All the best.
