This pictorial is a preamble to my official contribution to The Gish Sisters Blogathon hosted by Fritzi at Movies, Silently, a site dedicated to the celebration of silent film, and Lindsey and her fabulous classic film site, The Motion Pictures.  My official blogathon post in which I discuss D. W. Griffiths, The Musketeers of Pig Alley (1912) will be posted in a few days. The Gish Sisters Blogathon runs from September 7 through September 9. Please visit either host site for many insightful posts in the three-day celebration of a century of Lillian and Dorothy Gish.
