Do you Want to be a Movie Actress? - D.W. Griffith

"Are you the talented member of your family? And have you a longing in your heart to be a moving picture star?"

So begins this little article, in which D.W. Griffith himself is interviewed by Djuna Barnes, from the February 1925 issue of McCall's magazine. The Gish sisters, Nazimova, Sarah Bernhardt, and Mae Marsh are all mentioned briefly by him and it's an interesting read, though I doubt it would have done anything to help a young girl embark on a career as a moving picture star.

The article is continued below; just click on the link to enlarge.
