LILLIAN GISH Beloved Star of Screen and Stage FIRST TIME ON THE LECTURE PLATFORM Figure From HOLLYWOOD To BROADWAY LILLIAN GISH, the lecturer, is as lucid, interesting, intelligent and charming as Miss Gish, the actress. The audience enjoyed every moment of her presence, and regretted the inevitability of her lecture having to come to a close. A great artist and a warm human being was with us and like royalty, nothing she did or said could be wrong. JULIUS BLOOM, Director Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, N. Y.
