A few quick silent movie chicks

Happy Easter

Here are some silent film stars who are breaking out of their shells to celebrate Easter and welcome springtime. A short more recent video is in the middle.

and a 1934 film with Bela Lugosi, Murder by Television

Hope Lange's Easter Party Roddy McDowall, Robert Redford 1965
Soapbox Productions (no audio)

Hope Lange was in the television version of The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, co-starring with Edward Mulhare.

Director Alfred Hitchcock, who gave us the film Psycho, was said to have an aversion to eggs.... This dislike showed up in his films.
If you don't like the thought of egg salad or worse Deviled Eggs, don't look.

A couple of the guys:
Though Fred Kohler tended to play heavies,
he could be a softy, too 1928
Jackie Coogan and pet rabbit Oscar 1924
Coogan was in The Kid with Charlie Chaplin
He grew up to work with Betty Grable and
co-star as Uncle Fester in The Addams Family
