Actress
    (April 4, 1898-December 25, 1940)
    Born in Carbondale, Illinois
    Birth name was Agnes Eyre Hinkle
    Portrayed Lady Diana Mayo opposite Rudolph Valentino in 'The Sheik' (1921) and 'Son of the Sheik' (1926)
    Also appeared in 'His New Job' (1915), 'Richard the Brazen' (1917), 'Hedda Gabler' (1917), 'A Four Cornered Triangle' (1918), 'The Girl Problem' (1919), 'The Affairs of Anatol' (1921), 'Forbidden Fruit' (1921), 'The Ten Commandments' (1923), 'Eve's Love Letters' (1927), 'The Donovan Affair' (1929) and 'Souls at Sea' (1937)
    She had affairs with studio executive Jesse Lasky and actor Wallace Reid, who were both married.
    'The Sheik' was supposed to be her star vehicle, but she was overshadowed by Valentino.
    She had only one lead role in a talkie.
    Her affair with Reid ended after Reid's wife threatened to throw acid in her face if she continued seeing him.
    She was good friends with Gloria Swanson, with whom she shared a dressing room early in their careers.
    She invested her earnings in real estate, but lost most of her fortune following the 1929 stock market crash.
