The Beginning of the Hollywood Era - CNN

CNN has a nice gallery of photos from the silent era:

There are multiple sets; you'll need to click on the Garbo/Gilbert photo to view the full set of 17. Included are photos of the bigger stars of the day: Lillian Gish, Clara Bow, Louise Brooks, and also include Laurel and Hardy, Harry Langdon, and Buster Keaton.

In the accompanying story, the photos are part of a new iPad book:

Images from the Golden Age of Hollywood, from 1920 through 1960, have recently been released as an iPad book, “Glamour of the Gods.” The photographs are also being exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Bendigo Art Gallery in Victoria, Australia.

The ads are a little annoying but what are you going to do?
