Personal Quote:

[on her villainous role opposite Florence La Badie in Her Life and His (1917)] Some nights I wake up in a terrible nightmare in which I am causing dear Florence some some dreadful sorrow. I dare not take my children to the theater for fear they will grow up in the belief that their mother had been a villainess.


Children, with Benham, child actors Leland Benham and Dorothy Benham.
