Carla Laemmle c. 1920’s - (October 20th, 1909 - June 12th, 2014) R.I.P.
The beautiful niece of producer Carl Laemmle, who made her (uncredited) film debut in The Phantom Of The Opera (1925) as a ballet dancer. Her book entitled “Growing Up With Monsters” details her times at Universal studios from 1921 to 1937, has a foreword by Ray Bradbury, and is full of wonderful anecdotes, illustrations and photographs which document the era. Hers is the first voice heard in “Dracula” 1931), in an uncredited role as a bespectaled passenger in the coach which is carrying Renfield to Dracula’s castle. May she rest in peace, and I hope someone writes a book about this lovely lady, who lived to the age of 104, and truly was there at the beginning of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Happy Birthday Harry Langdon born June 15, 1884"The oddest thing about this whole funny business is that the public really want to laugh, but it’s the hardest thing in the world to make them do it."
"There should be a breathing spell between laughs, with a gradual development leading up to a laugh. A picture that is on laugh from start to finish becomes tedious. Relief is necessary."
"Most deliciously comic moments on the outside, are full of sad significance for those who realize the sinister characterization of the situation."
"I must be wretched, and consequently ludicrous. When I do a part in a film, I must really suffer. In my pictures I allow myself to be a victim of Fate. But a sort of Divine providence always carries me through."
-Harry’s unique take on comedy in his own words
