Florence Lawrence, aka “The Biograph Girl,” (January 2, 1886 - December 28, 1938)
“She was in a class by herself. In every part she played she was an exquisite delight. Whether comic, pathetic, dramatic, tragic or any other old thing, she simply took the rag right off. The power of expression that lay in her features was nothing less than marvelous, and the lightning changes were a wonder. In fact, she was a wonder altogether, and her versatility would be unbelievable, if a fellow hadn’t seen it.”
P.C. Levar in a letter published in Moving Pictures World.

Happy birthday, Florence.
