: Hello to all who have been following this story. Colleen Platner who acted in various silent films and the 1920 version of LOTM passed away at the nursing home here in Boulder on Friday evening. I haven't spoken with her family about it, but if I find out any more info I will pass it on. One thing about Colleen--she had one amazing life! Thanks for letting me share this special experience with you all.
Yes, this is very sad news. It would have been wonderful if she had been able to share some of her memories with you (and thus with us). Movie-making was such a different world in her time, and her perspective would have been a real education for us. Thank you for sharing what you did learn about her.
