Here is he husband, the handsome, feckless Adam Weiss, portrayed by the divine John Gilbert. Emily loves her husband dearly, although he is unworthy of her. They are in business together in Fort Lee, New Jersey, producing silent movies.
|Their archenemy, Thomas Edison|
Here are a few of the actors in the Weiss's little company:
|Faye Winningly |
|Erno Berg |
|Vera Zinovia |
|Robert Montmorency/Chalmers |
There are others that I kept pictures of while I was working: the chief of police, the labor agitator, the two Mohawk Indians. But you should read the book and see them in your own mind's eye. The Edge of Ruin. Later I'll show you pictures of the characters in The Brink of Fame, where Emily goes to Hollywood.
