Attached is an interview with the silent film actress Blanche Sweet (1895 - 1986) who, at that point in her career, had been a "photoplayer" (ie. an actress) for only six years. Prior to her contract with The Lasky Company, where she was obliged to perform at the time of this interview, she had toiled in the vineyards of such studios as Reliance and Biograph (where she was nick-named, "The Biograph Blonde"). Unlike her co-swells in that young industry, who liked to read and re-read their recent interviews from Motion Picture Magazine while loafing around the film sets, we read that Blanche Sweet was very fond of reading Tennyson, Kipling and the novels of Edward Phillips Oppenheim (1866 - 1946). During the course of her career she had appeared in well over one hundred films.
