Silent star Madge Bellamy poses in a white Santa beard in 1926 for a rare pair of Christmas photos. The actress had a long and interesting life. When she was 87 she explained how she was different from many other stars.
"I’ve avoided all my life the romantic stuff which novels and movies are about. Never went in for that mush. Of course, I’ve missed what most people would call the ultimate human experience. But then, I’ve remained my own person, which at my age is a very satisfying state," she said.
