Rick Arlen, the only child of famed silent film actress Jobyna Ralston, passed away in 2017. He left his family’s photo collection to his friend and silent film researcher, Kate Gaddis. Here, Kate recounts her relationship with Rick and sets a biographical narrative of the Arlen family’s life to pictures from their private collection. As one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses of the silent film era, Jobyna starred in many iconic films, including the Oscar-winning war film Wings.
Dawnbreaker Press wants to make our books available to everyone. We would give them out for free if we could, but since our printer knows where to find us we can't exactly duck the invoice.
However, if the asking price is too much for you, you have the option of discounting your book purchase either by 25% or 50% at checkout using the coupon "25off" or "50off" (without quotes). Please pay what you can afford - we never want to turn a reader away because of money.
You can also support us and our authors if you want. Dawnbreaker Press does not take donations directly; the best way to support us and our authors is to buy our books and spread the word! Buy extra copies for friends and family and encourage them to leave reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, or wherever else. The author will love you and their book can reach more readers. Thank you for your support!!
