Lillian Gish Silent Screen Star
Lillian Gish began as a star of the silent screen, but went on to have a 75 year career in movies, the stage, and television. Her last movie was The Whales of August in 1987 - at the age of 93. She died at 99 years of age.
Isn't this the most beautiful picture? The lighting, her clothes - the caption says she's wearing a pink morning gown of chiffon and lace but I think the photo is great in black and white.
