   MeiDei  An except from the historical novel "The Girls in the Picture", by Melanie Benjamin. A story about early movies and Mary Pickford, et al. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34748722-the-girls-in-th

This was a book previewed on line during my computer hiatus : )
"I'd written a few feature articles back in San Francisco, for the Hearst newspapers. They were little society stories; once I'd been sent to interview the theater actress Marie Dressler, who'd laughed at my youth but then spent hours telling me everything about her troubles with men; they all seemed to steal her money and leave her. She couldn't understand why—I stared at her face, really quite ugly, with coarse features, bulging eyes, and lips like a toad, but as she kept talking about her heartaches, those popping eyes shone wistfully, girlishly, until her face became almost beautiful with the generosity and tenderness of her soul. I wrote about that instead—I thought I brought her completely to life on the page—but the article never ran".

   MeiDei  The quote above is supposedly Frances Marion's (vs. Mary Pickford ) & the photo is of Marie Dressler - picked to enhance the quote.
