I have been roaming once again through my treasure trove of these thousands of movie stills and ephemera. It’s almost like stepping back in time, looking into someone else’s life and being part of the making of Hollywood, which is astounding. Will I ever be able to go through it all? A Christmas card to Arthur Beck and Leah Baird, from “Boots, Kit and Johnny Carson”;

a folder full of the original silent film stills of Ben Hur, yes, the first Ben Hur movie ever made.

The Great Chicago Fire in 1925, dozens of actors and actresses grace the silent film stills of times past. The Return of Sherlock Holmes, more Vitagraph players, handsigned notes, love letters, business letters and postcards, lobby cards and movie posters. Endless. And here is more for your enjoyment.
