Honoring Fearless Flo

april-27-320x500

We celebrate the life and career of Florence LaBadie, a young silent film sensation in the early 20th-century. Appearing in over 180 films over the course of her short life, LaBadie was a stunningly beautiful actress who enjoyed tremendous fame in her day. A tragic car accident in 1917 cut her life short at the age of 29, and she was buried at Green-Wood shortly thereafter. Mysteriously, neither a gravestone nor a monument was ever placed at her burial site and her resting place has remained unmarked for nearly a century. Now, with the help of Green-Wood, Ned Thanhouser and Thanhouser Company Film Preservation, loyal LaBadie fans and film historians, “Fearless Flo” will finally receive a proper grave marker. Join us on LaBadie’s birthday for a dedication ceremony at her final resting place, featuring music and speeches. A reception will follow in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel.

This is a free event, but please register your group using Eventbrite (http://www.green-wood.com/event/2-p-m-honoring-fearless-flo/)
