Lon Chaney and Lillian Gish to Top West Coast’s Weekly Bill (San Bernardino Sun, 1928)

  • San Bernardino Sun, Volume 62, Number 74, 13 May 1928
  • Lon Chaney and Lillian Gish to Top West Coast’s Weekly Bill

Lillian Gish, considered by the foremost critics as the finest actress on the silver screen, but whose popularity with the public is a fluctuating one, is booked to appear the latter part of the week in her first big modern role. For many years Miss Gish has adhered to the lily-pure and fragile type. In “The Enemy” she plays a more human, though highly emotional role, as the tragic Pauli, whose life is ruined by the war. Ralph Forbes is cast as the young Austrian, and Ralph Emerson as the English student, both suitors for the fair Pauli.

The Cast:

  • •          Pauli Arndt …………..………… Lillian Gish
  • •          Carl Behrend ………………. Ralph Forbes
  • •          Bruce Gordon ………….. Ralph Emerson
  • •          Professor Arndt ……….…. Frank Currier
  • •          August Behrend ….….. George Fawcett
  • •          Mitzi Winkelmann …… Fritzi Ridgeway
  • •          Fritz Winkelmann ……… John S. Peters
  • •          Jan …………………….…………….. Karl Dane
