Help Save Essanay!

I wrote about Essanay Studios in Chicago a while back...

Following them on Facebook, their fundraising campaign is still going:

After appearing in a handful of films for Essanay, including "Detective Dorothy," 4-year-old Sadie Frances Osman made a film with Chicago's own Selig Polyscope. Following that, she retired from the film business. She remained in Illinois with her parents, continued her education, and married Gene Barrett. Frances, as she was known following her departure from showbiz, stayed in Illinois and died in 2001.

Time is running out! Help us preserve our rich legacy, and discover more about the stars that passed through our doors by supporting our restoration campaign http://bit.ly/HY3sG2.

Please help and donate if you can!
