Vintage Cinema

I love watching the credits of old movies. Although they definitely skew masculine, there're still lots of forgotten names to find for both genders! So, I went through popular, high-grossing, & award-winning films from 1917 all the way to 1950, and pulled out some fun and/or interesting vintage names. :)
