Victorian goth

La Perla, Harper’s Bazaar, December 1995.

I am very sad to report that Carla Laemmle, one of our last direct links to the world of silent cinema, has passed away at 104.
Born in 1909 with the given name Rebecca, she later changed her name to Carla. The niece of Universal Studios founder Carl Laemmle, she danced as the prima ballerina in The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and spoke the first line of dialogue in the first sound horror film, Dracula (1931). May she rest in peace and be forever remembered.

then this is natural selection at work and you probably deserved it
