Lillian Gish, the fragile flower battered by the cruel winds of fate. Sigh. Animated GIF

musketeers-of-pig-alley-lillian-gish-dw-griffith-lillian-stands-up-for-herselfSee poor Lillian Gish, a damsel in distress once again! What can she possibly do when Elmer Booth (one of the screen’s first charming gangsters) tries to make her his chicken? Why, she must faint, of course!

(I hope you can see the GIF. Lillian smacks Elmer and shoves him back. Good girl!)

On a side note, Elmer Booth’s oddly made-up friend is future cowboy star and John Wayne mentor Harry Carey.
