American Vedettes, Part 2

On 28 October 2017, EFSP published our first selection from the French series Les Vedettes de Cinéma. The series was published in the 1920s by A.N. (Armand Noyer), located at Boulevard de Strasbourg in Paris. Then we focused on European stars, now on Hollywood stars. Yesterday we did a post on the male American stars, today we present 15 female stars of silent Hollywood.

November and December will be EFSP's Hollywood months with European postcards of American film stars and films. From the 1920s, the Hollywood studios had their own photo departments, so we will stop with our series on photographers and start a new series on the Hollywood studios. It starts next Saturday, 10 November, with Warner Bros.
