In Pace Requiescat, Anita Page


I was afraid I was going to have to make this post sooner or later. Anita Page, one of the very few living silent stars, has gone to the great gig in the sky. With her loss, we are even further removed from the golden age. This turn of events makes me much sadder than it perhaps ought to. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, Anita, et æternam habeas requiem.

Addendum: A quality obit at the Washington Post, and another from the New York Times (it took them long enough, didn't it?).
