Malcolm & Friends

A reservation for two was made in Lillian’s name. Seats were reserved for Lillian Gish and Malcolm. Two seats. No further explanation. On the day of the departure, in walks Lillian Gish carrying Malcolm. Someone behind the counter looked quite surprised! But Lillian acted as if everything were within reason. “Here we are”, she announced, “Lillian Gish and Malcolm.” And before there was any kind of response, “The seats were confirmed for the two of us”. “Lillian Gish: A Life on Stage and Screen” By Stuart Oderman

Malcolm, a West Highland terrier, presented as a gift by Sir Ian Malcolm in 1937 when Miss Lillian Gish visited Scotland.
