Saved from ignominy

Here is a link to an excellent article by Mick LaSalle which appeared in today's San Francisco Chronicle. It is about Leatrice Fountain, the daughter of John Gilbert, and her campaign to restore her father's reputation. The article can be found athttp://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2005/07/06/DDGMIDI4JU1.DTL ( Pictured below is Gilbert and his one time lover, Greta Garbo. )

[ FYI: After the screening of The Big Parade at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, 
Leatrice Fountain will be signing copies of Dark Star - the rather excellent book she wrote about her father. Though the book is now out-of-print and somewhat hard-to-find, two dozen copies will be for sale courtesy of the author and The Booksmith. ]
