Ramon Novarro has never made any secret of his deep admiration for the artistry and beauty of Lillian Gish, and now that Lillian is well into the making of “La Boheme,” Novarro is often seen on the outskirts of her set. The other day, he was over in a corner quite alone. When Miss Gish finished the scene, Ramon went up, rather he ventured up, and spoke to her. I once saw a freckle-faced little schoolboy present a beloved teacher with a bouquet of flowers. She thanked him for bringing them. “No, ma’am,” he replied, “thank you for taking them.” Such was Ramon’s attitude. His deference was a lovely tribute from one artist to another.
