About

Silent film era blonde actress who played both the alluring siren and the self-empowered flapper on screen. Her films include The Light in the Dark, Fifty-Fifty, and The Price of a Party.

Before Fame

She became known more for her stunning looks than for her acting ability. Critics called her Hopeless Hampton.

Family Life

She met her future husband, film executive Jules Brulatour, when he was with his first wife.
