At that time it was't really going.


So, he dicied. To be her


She tried to be an actress.

But, she never got alot of

chances to be on Boardway.

She went on to other things.

She wanted to meet famous.


Besty thought.

That if she moved into a famous.


New York.

That would do it.

She went around town.

Looking for a job.

She told Tom her manager.

I want to try acting again.

He said ok.

I try to get you something.

Nothing happened.

Until, she met her idol.

Lillain Gish.

I belive that Ms. Gish.

And one day.

They asked her to speak on.

Ms. Gish's behalf.

If you don't rember her.

That was a wonderful story

I hope her dreams came thru

Is she still living

How old is she?

Is she related to the flag maker?

Do you remember Lash Larue?

We all have dreams

Few see them fulfilled

I remember Lash Larue when I was a youngun
Use to go the movies on sarurday and watch
old Lash. Years later I run into him down in
No. carolina when he was an old cowpoke.
Heck of a nice guy. He gave me an 8by 10 glossy
signed and wished me good luck. He was dressed
all in black and had his trademark whip with him.
He was working for a leather goods store. I think
I was the only one in the store who remembered
him. I think he has past on since then.
