Silent Sunday – Anna Lehr Lobby Card
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 293
I am probably more impressed with my modest Anna Lehr collection than anyone else. Lehr was Ann Dvorak’s mom and Â a film actress for roughly a decade starting in 1912. Every now and then I come across a piece of memorabilia from one of Lehr’s films like this lobby card fromÂ A Man Without a CountryÂ starring Arnold Daly.
The film was based on an 1863 short story of the same name by Edward Everett Hale. Curiously, most of the time this 1918 movie is credited as being calledÂ My Own United States so I am not sure if this card is from a re-titled subsequent release.
Lehr is around twenty-eight in this photo and think traces of Ann are definitely visible.
