Wanda Hawley was a popular leading lady of the silent era who specialized in sweet romantic comedies and romantic dramas. Due to Wanda's petite status, she billed herself as Wanda Petit for a brief period in her career. She rose to stardom in Cecil B. DeMille films and later starred in films for director Sam Wood. Wanda Hawley had a contract dispute with Paramount and, starting in 1923, began bouncing from studio to studio, her fame and box office appeal steadily declining. Her last screen appearance was in 1932.
