I thought Anita Page, who passed away last Saturday morning at age 98, deserved a post and a remembrance here. She’s being remembered as the last of the adult silent film stars, though she was really more of a pre-code starlet in my mind. Page co-starred with Warren William in two favorites, Under 18 (1931) and as the, er, loosely moralled Jenny LeGrande in possibly the best of all pre-codes, Skyscraper Souls (1932).
Following you’ll find several links to coverage of the passing of Anita Page:

And here’s the Tammy Stone’s Profile on the life and career of Anita Page on my other site, things-and-other-stuff.com
My sincere condolences to the family and survivors of Ms. Page. For me her image on the screen means I’m about to have some fun, all these years later.
