Imagination Connoisseur, Paul in Long Beach, writes in to let us know about the death of the last living silent film star.

Rob,

Diana Serra Cary, the last living star of silent movies, has died at age 101.

As Baby Peggy she headlined a series of films in the silent era and was popular like Shirley Temple would later be. Sadly, many are lost films.

A very special salute to this grand lady.
