Back in the saddle again.  Let's resume with a photo of an actor who was there when movies were young:  Henry B. Walthall.  He's shown in a still from his 1932 film, Central Park (thanks to Melynie for identifying the film for us).  Walthall's film career began in 1909, and included such highlights as The Birth of a Nation (1915), The Road to Mandalay (1926), London After Midnight (1927), and A Tale of Two Cities (1935).  Also check out this neat site that pays tribute to "The Little Colonel," as Walthall was known after his role in The Birth of a Nation.
