Gloria Swanson, Greta Garbo, Lillian Gish, Joan Crawford, Clara Bow: the most well-known faces of the silent film era — and the first American superstars of the modern age. Join Fresh City Life as we highlight the beautiful and talented women who helped to launch a new art form. These pre-sound movie icons were masters of telling a story with an artful gesture or a meaningful look. We’ve scheduled five great films and we’ll let you know about other great silent films in our collection, too.
