  • A Real Trouper

    Bessie Love was really a great actress. She was in a lot of movies and was alive for a long time. And in her early talkies, she really had a talent in dancing and singing and stuff. I think she could've been a really good musical performer if MGM had given her a chance. But she's still amazing, and so much more than the older sister from the Broadway Melody. I will always remember Bessie Love, a real trouper.

    Bessie Love had been in films almost 15 years (she was in Intolerance) when talkies came in. Love starred in The Broadway Melody with Anita Page and Charles King and earned an Oscar nomination as best actress. She recharged her career in the new medium but couldn't follow up her smashing performance as Hank with another hit. By the mid 30s she abandoned Hollywood for London and worked sporadically in films for another 40 years.
