I’m lucky to share a birthday with my favorite silent film actor, John Gilbert!
Here’s to you, Jack.
My favorite mural is looking extra sharp after a recent repainting, so I thought I’d use it to wish a happy birthday to my favorite silent film actor and birthday mate, John Gilbert!
Garbo and Gilbert
John Gilbert, my favourite silent movie actor, was born on 10 July 1897.*
Let’s celebrate with some photos of the great matinée idol!
