gretchen-the-greenhorn-1916-dorothy-gish-silent-movie-hand-kissingDorothy Gish is having some lovey time with Frank Bennett in Gretchen the Greenhorn. I love that little laugh Dorothy gives when she receives her hand kiss.

The younger Gish sister enjoyed popularity in comedies and light dramas throughout the ‘teens and twenties. Unfortunately, many of her solo films have been lost. Lillian Gish always spoke highly of her sister’s talent and Gretchen proves that this was not just familial pride. Dorothy is a delight!
