pure as snow
when the grand john barrymore was cast to play the dastardly 'svengali', he chose marion marsh to portray 'trilby.' this is the movie that introduced me to the adorable actress. she made several films in the 30's and 40's which sadly, are not available.
however, you can see her heart shine in 'beauty and the boss' on youtube. to say this movie is outdated is an understatement. still, marion is so stunning it matters not.
