lena montego and alfred b. davenport

Lena Montego was a reclusive retired silent movie star who spent her declining years in her lonely palatial mansion mourning the loss of her career, and the death of her husband, Alfred B. Davenport. She gave strict orders to her employees and friends that they must never divulge her whereabouts. “That was where the old bird stayed until the day she died,” said the tour guide as we flew over the house that had become such a landmark for us silent movie fanatics. Back then she was a legend. Now she’s just a footnote, known only to hard core fanatics.

    1. Thanks I took advantage of the picture’s angle. I invented Lena when I was a kid in my teens and got the idea for Alfred from a TV character who was on an obscure short.lived show from that era
