Historic Hood River
Ann Pennington was an actress and dancer with quite an interesting biography. It’s well worth the read. She signed this head shot for Art Kolstad, owner of the Rialto Theater. I see at least 8 different films in which Ann Pennington starred promoted in the pages of the Hood River Glacier between 1918 and 1927. I presumed the stars who signed photographs for Art Kolstad performed at his theater. It’s certainly possible, but I cannot find any proof Ann Pennington visited Hood River. It could also be the case these were simply promotional images sent to a theater owner.
Thanks to LE’s comment, here’s a video of Ann Pennington dancing in 1929.
