Editor's Note:
Claire du Brey was an American actress in silent films as well as talkies.
Her close friends included Marie Dressler and Sidney Guileroff, the first
hair stylist to receive screen credit for his work on films.

Claire lived across the street from my friend John Phillip Law in the house
where he was born.
