May plays Esther

the release of yet another version of "Ben-Hur" is reviving interest in the silent version. the blog "Old Hollywood in Color" posts some dazzling stills as well as this banner with a sensational profile of May McAvoy.

& here she is again with leading man Ramon Navarro.

most of you have seen this snapshot of me taken with May & our mutual friend Lois Wilson years ago. it's the only picture I have with her & reminds me of her sense of humor. a lovely lady.  "Ben-Hur" was hardly her best performance but if it brings her back into the conversation so much the better.
