"Among the rugged peaks that crown down upon the Borgo Pass, are found crumbling castles of a bygone age." - Carla Laemmle, Dracula (1931) Carla Laemmle is one of the oldest living silent film stars, and the first ever to speak in a talking horror picture - Dracula (1931). Carla, now at 100 years of age, has danced and acted in scores of groundbreaking Hollywood pictures. A flapper, a classically trained ballet dancer, and a follower of Buddhist philosophy, Carla has followed her diverse artistic passions, and appeared in a wide array of films like The King of Jazz with George Gershwin, The Phantom of the Opera with Lon Chaney, and Night and Day with Cary Grant. From her salacious ballet dance in Hollywood Review of 1929, to her recent appearance in an independent film honoring gay relationships, Carla has lept gracefully over conventional mores, time and again. Here, Carla Laemmle returns to the original Phantom of the Opera stage to shed light on the risks and rewards of her life in film and dance. Written By Tom Tangen  Less
