Mini Bio (1)

Victoria Forde was born in New York City on April 21, 1896. The city in which she came into the world was the entertainment capital of the world at that time. Broadway and the fledgling film industry were located there. Victoria gravitated toward that entertainment field. She was just 16 years old when she appeared in her first silent motion picture called Sheridan's Ride (1913) in 1913. Two other that year quickly followed, Pedro's Dilemma (1912) and His Only Son (1912). Although she was a good actress, there were so many competitors for parts, Victoria made relatively few movies. She had met Tom Mix on the set of one of the Westerns the two appeared in. They married in 1918. After filming Western Blood (1918) that same year, Victoria retired from films to a life of domesticity. She died on July 24, 1964, in Beverly Hills, California. She was 68 years old.

Trivia (5)

Daughter of actress Eugenie Forde.
Announced in 1924 that she was undergoing rhinoplasty. She did so to "look her best for her husband.".
In her day, she had the second largest collection of jewelry in Hollywood after Mrs. Cecil B. deMille. Fond of diamonds and sapphires, she was suspicious of pearls and disliked rubies and emeralds. She was rumored to frequently wear her jewels to the breakfast table and around the house, as well as out to social engagements.
Retired from acting upon her marriage to Tom Mix. Her newly acquired title "Mrs. Tom Mix" kept her in the public eye until their divorce, but she appears never to have attempted a come-back.
Fourth wife of silent film super-star Tom Mix. Their child Thomasina 'Tommie' Mix was born in 1922.
