Silent Film Stars

Helen Lindroth

Helen Lindroth (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“Having had experience on the legitimate stage before entering the silent drama, I at first missed the suspense of the raising of the curtain, and the rows and rows of people before me with their intensity, laughter, and outburts. Now, I do not want them, as they would distract my mental picture. But remember, we artists of the screen must confront something infinitely more exacting. It is the camera. The eye of the lens is the sea of faces and the ‘click’ of the crank is the applause, while the cautious suggestions of the director may be considered the critic.”Helen Lindroth
