The singular actress of this week's selection
is the Biograph Blonde who sounds like a confection
But the name was, for her, quite an oxymoron -
there was hardly a soul she did not slam the door on.
A talented woman, with Pickford and Gish,
who ruined her chances being too diva-ish.
In the storms of success she was more like a shower,
but a potent one - our little "Miss Sweet and Sour".

Blanche Sweet
