Blonde leading lady of the silent screen. Tended to play naive ingénues opposite outdoorsy action heroes like Douglas Fairbanks, Buck Jones and William S. Hart (to whom she was married for five years). Joined Paramount in the 20's. Failed to make an impact in talking pictures, having had the female lead in the depressing melodrama Lummox (1930).
