Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Violet Hopson (1891-1973) was an American-born British actress. She was a major star of the silent era. She was popually known by audiences as the "Dear Delightful Villianess". Her career suffered slightly following the end of her marriage to actor Alec Worcester. A silent film is a film with no synchronized recorded sound, especially with no spoken dialogue. In silent films for entertainment the dialogue is transmitted through muted gestures, pantomime and title cards. The idea of combining motion pictures with recorded sound is nearly as old as film itself, but because of the technical challenges involved, synchronized dialogue was only made practical in the late 1920s with the perfection of the audion amplifier tube and the introduction of the Vitaphone system. After the release of The Jazz Singer in 1927, "talkies" became more and more commonplace. Within a decade, popular production of silent films had ceased.
