Wallace Reid Tragedy One of Hollywood's first truly tragic stories centered on the handsome and likable Wallace Ried. Reid was one of the silents screen's biggest stars from 1919 to 1922. Hailing from a showbiz family, he initially hoped to be a film director. At age 19 Reid took a script his father had written to Vitagraph Studios. The studio recognized Reid's potential as a sex symbol and cast him as an actor. The versatile Reid often worked as a director, writer, and even as a cameraman. He was featured in two of D.W. Griffith's epics: Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916). Reid also appeared as a dashing race car driver in several Famous Player films, becoming a major cinema heartthrob. While making The Valley of the Giants (1919), Reid was injured in a train wreck. The studio gave Reid morphine injections for the pain so he could continue working. Because Reid was so valuable, his studio kept providing him with more and more morphine so he could keep making movies. Reid quickly became deeply addicted but there was virtually no drug-addiction help in those days. By 1922, Reid's health was in tatters. He died on January 18, 1923 at age 31. His widow, Dorothy Davenport, made a film about drug addiction titled Human Wreckage and toured with it to raise national awareness of the dangers of morphine.

Creature Comforts Electricity Ads Nick Park made these for an electrical supplier in the UK. Better known for his Wallace and Gromit movies, all the voices used were un-scripted by ordinary members of the public being asked what they thought of their total heating package? Nick and Aardman productions then took these and used the characters from an earlier hit of his, Creature Comforts, and used his magic to create the ads. Love the Scottish pandas.

General George Custer with 7th Cavalry and their Families There is information here on Capt George Wallace (second from left), who was my husband Larry's great-great uncle. Capt. George D. Wallace, native of York, SC, son of Congressman Alexander Stuart Wallace and wife Nancy Lee Ratchford and 1872 graduate of West Point was the first Southerner to graduate after the War Between the States. He served first in his home state of South Carolina with the 7th Cavalry. When Indian problems increased and Reconstruction troubles were reduced all of the 7th Cavalry were sent to the Northern Indian problems, involving Sioux, Cheyenne, Nez Perce and others. It's interesting to note that his brother fought with the Confederacy. The rest of the information on this photo is in the comments section.

Grand Hotel The cast included a series of top names: Greta Garbo, Lionel Barrymore, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery, Lewis Stone and Jean Hersholt; and, the film opens and closes with Lewis Stone's totally unaware statement: "Grand Hotel. People come and go. Nothing ever happens". The comment turns out to be ironic during the few days in which the plot unfolds, because everything seems to be happening at the hotel, from romance to robbery to an accidental death...

Abdication of Edward VIII Speech In the tumultous years before WWII, England's stability was shaken by the resignation of its King Edward VIII. As Monarch and, therefore, head of the Church of England, his decision to marry a divorced American, Wallace Simpson, became constitutionally unacceptable, despite many political maneuvers. The last try was to form a Morganactic union, in which his wife would not be queen, but it proved unworkable. He found it impossible to discharge his duties as King, without his wife by his side. Despite what he says in his speech, his brother, George, was NOT prepared to take the throne. Unworldly, lacking confidence, and with a stutter, George became England's wartime King and performed his duties well. According to the late Queen Mother, his wife, his rise to the throne hastened his death.
