Mini Bio (1)

One of the more prolific serial actresses, Neva Gerber's film credits go back to 1912, when she was making one-reelers for Kalem. Her first serial, as far as is known, was The Great Secret (1917). She alternated between serial work and one-reel comedies for Universal and other studios and appeared in The Voice on the Wire (1917), the first of nine serials she would make with producer/director Ben F. Wilson (to whom she was not, as has been erroneously reported, married). She made some first-rate westerns with Harry Carey and a series of very cheap ones with the deservedly obscure Dick Hatton (who, according to veteran stuntman and director Yakima Canutt, was terrified of three things--guns, horses and the outdoors). She then reteamed with Wilson to make westerns, adventures and serials again, winding up her career with The Voice from the Sky (1929). After Wilson died later that year, she retired from films. She died in Palm Springs, California, in 1974.
