- (1896-1993)Born in Springfield, Ohio, the actress was always protective of her younger sister Dorothy Gish. As "Baby Lillian," she made her debut in a touring melodrama in 1902. Occasionally during her childhood she toured apart from her mother and sister. After she was hired by D. W. Griffith in 1912, Gish devoted most of her acting career to motion pictures. Her work on the legitimate stage included Uncle Vanya (1930), Within the Gates* (1934), Hamlet (1936), and The Trip to Bountiful* (1953). Her autobiography, The Movies, Mr. Griffith, and Me, was published in 1973.
