    Autographs of Lloyd Hughes and Virginia Brown Faire from The Lost World . Even in 1925, a movie thriller such as The Lost World required sex symbols, and the film indeed had one of each gender. Lloyd Hughes played Edward E. Malone, and in this strapping study, with pipe and boots, he writes, "To Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Hardly in the trappings of a Fleet St. journalist, but 'Ed' Malone just the same Sincerely Lloyd Hughes." Then there was Virginia Brown Faire as Marquette, the "half-caste girl," who poses in exotic splendor with bracelets, guitar and flowers in her hair, writing, "To Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: In appreciation for being connected with so great a drama as 'The Lost World." Sincerely Virginia Brown Faire." Hughes' last film was in 1939, Faire's in 1935, so these long-lost players receive a proper tribute here. The 8x10 stills are set inside large borders for 11x14 presentation and are very attractive, with photographer James N. Doolittle's name in the lower right margin. "They had faces then," and these shots prove it, making both (with their inscriptions to Conan Doyle) desirable relics from a major silent film.
