Mini Bio (1)

Originally a schoolteacher, Mary Maurice caught the acting bug and joined the Pittsburgh (PA) Stock Company in 1868. After a long and distinguished stage career she signed with Vitagraph and made her film debut in 1909. She appeared in almost 150 films for the company, and played mothers or grandmothers in so many of them that she got the nickname "Grand Old Lady of the Films". She stayed with Vitagraph until shortly before her death in 1918.
