Description
Anthony Slide discusses his book, “Silent Players.” He begins by explaining that he first became interested in silent films in the 1960s. He then explores some of the actors and actresses that he writes about in his book, including May Marsh, Marjorie Wilson, and Fay Wray. He goes on to discuss the importance of the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital, which is a retirement community in Woodland Hills, California that provides services for members of the motion picture and television industry. Slide also explains how he chooses the subjects for his books and how he only writes about people and topics that interest him. Later in the interview he discusses his friendship with actress Blanche Sweet and the short documentary he did with her.
