Lillian Gish’s Great Achievement

Pioneer silent film star Lillian Gish achieved the longest acting career in show business. She said, “You know, when I first went into the movies, Lionel Barrymore played my grandfather. Later he played my father and finally he played my husband. If he had lived, I’m sure I would have played his mother. That’s the way it is in Hollywood. The men get younger and the women get older.”
