Sister, Sister

Happy birthday, baby sister - Miss Dorothy Gish is 114 today. 

Too often remembered only in the shadow of Lillian, Dorothy had a quite respectable career of her own, appearing in a string of popular comedies in the late teens and early twenties, moving later in the deade into UK-made prestige vehicles that showcased her flair for both glamour and laughter.  She's seen here in 1926's Nell Gwyn, a role it's hard to imagine the other Gish trying on - and certainly big sister rarely showed that much shoulder, no?
