About

Her trim figure and youthful air made her a rival of Mary Pickford for child roles until both women were well into their 30s. She starred in the 1916 version of Snow White, which so impressed Walt Disney, that he decided to reprise the story for his first feature cartoon.

Before Fame

Her air of youthful insouciance made her a popular actress on Broadway productions like Mr. Pickwick. She began appearing in silent films in 1914.

Trivia

She starred in the 1919 film A Girl Named Mary.

Family Life

She married Harry Palmerson Williams in 1918, and when her contract ended a year later, she retired from show business.

Associated With

She, Pickford and Lillian Gish were three of the most popular actresses of the silent screen era, all rising to fame due to their preternatural youth and their ability to impart innocence.
