Sharing the legacy . . .


My son and his family visited me over the Fourth of July weekend and I showed them the stills I have from some of the silent films Helen Gardner produced. And I told them stories about her and her female relatives, including her mother and my mother, who was Gardner’s only child. Since I own original manuscripts of scenarios of some of her films, we came up with the idea of matching stills to dialogue and making a kind of PowerPoint reconstruction of films that have been lost. An exciting idea that I will keep in the back of my mind and work on when I can!
