Gwynplaine MacIntyre in “Baby Peggy”

This evening, December 3, Turner Classic Movies ran the documentary Baby Peggy: The Elephant in the Room about the last surviving actor from the silent films, from 8 to 9 p.m., Eastern time.

Reports Andrew Porter:

Imagine my surprise when, at about 16 minutes into the film, there was F. Gwynplaine MacIntyre, expressing his appreciation for the actress at a film festival in, I believe, the Netherlands, and asking to have his photo taken with her.

The documentary repeats December 3 at 11:30 p.m., Eastern time.
