Bessie Love (1898-1986)

on Facebook I belong to 2 groups celebrating silent film. today there was a posting of a "rare" signd photograph of Bessie Love.  so I decided to share mine:

I only met this legendary performer once. it was when I went to her place in London in 1973 for tea. it was then that she signd this for me.

she was enchanting. on the back of the photo was a description of the dance she was doing.  so she recreatd it for me.  & we spoke of our mutual friend Lila Lee.

I think of that meeting often & always with such affection.
