Attached is an excerpt from a longer article by a middle-aged fellow who looked back to his last days as a teenager and recalled some of the offerings and events from 1914 Hollywood.

The most popular screen performers were Mary Pickford, John Bunny, Ethel Barrymore and May Irwin.

The most popular films were "The Peril's of Pauline" and an Italian film titled "Cabiria" (directed by Giovanni Pastrone, aka: Piero Fosco).

This reminiscence pays tribute to a stand-up comedian named Jack Gardner and his skit, "Curse You Jack Dalton", in which he interacted with the performers on a movie screen, "ordering" them about, cracking wise and even having the audience believe that he had shot one of them.

This site has more articles about silent movies.
