  Los Angeles Times file photo  

[Update: Here’s a little more information. The photo was published June 21, 1936, in The Times rotogravure section, which wasn’t microfilmed, so I can’t refer to the original. The occasion was a meeting at the Riverside Drive Breakfast Club in which silent screen stars "organized a club of their own to perpetuate memories of the past, though many of them still are active in 'the pictures.' "]

They had faces then – and here they are: A reunion of silent film stars in the 1930s. There are a lot of folks in this photo so I’ll leave it up for a few days. I suspect it will be more fun if I post the entries as they come in rather than waiting until the end. Enjoy! And you will see where I had to paste this together from two scans.
