The book is romance-like, an older book from late 80's early 90's.

The main male character likes black & white silent films and owns a camel saddle from one of the old silent films. He goes to a film festival/cinema and sees his camel saddle on a camel being led away. He points out to his companion the saddle and follows.

Falls in love with one of silent star actresses and gets a job as an extra on the set. She says she can't leave the cinema (everything is still in the 20's and in black and white). He convinces her to come to his home one evening. In the morning she has aged to her 80's but he is the same. They have fallen in love and plan to live up their remaining time together.

Any ideas?
