NEW FROM OUR FRIENDS AT EFSP--ALL ABOUT MAE MARSH--Mae Marsh (1894-1968) was an American screen actress with a career spanning over 50 years and over 200 films. Among her memorable films are D.W. Griffith's silent classics Judith of Bethulia (1914), The Birth of a Nation (1915), and Intolerance: Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages (1916). During the sound era, she played small parts in many films by John Ford. READ AND SEE MORE HERE.
