Did You Know?

Trivia:

She was the first actress in legitimate-film history to ever do a full frontal nude scene on film. It was in Back to God's Country (1919), which coincidentally (or perhaps because of the scene) became the most financially successful silent film ever made in Canada. The tagline in one of the posters for the movie was, "Is the Nude Rude?". See more »
