It was D.W. Griffith who recognized the potential of the Gish sisters, Lillian and Dorothy, and cast them together in their film debut, 'An Unseen Enemy,' in 1912. Here, they are captured under an umbrella during the filming of Griffith's 1921 silent-film classic 'Orphans of the Storm.' This photograph, by James Abbé, appeared in the November 1921 Vanity Fair.
