    (May 10, 1889-March 23, 1965)

    Acted in ‘To Have and to Hold (1916),’ ‘Her Body in Bond (1918),’ ‘The Delicious Little Devil (1919),’ ‘The Gilded Lily (1921),’ ‘Peacock Alley (1922),’ ‘Circe The Enchantress (1924),’ ‘The Merry Widow (1925)’ and ‘Bachelor Apartment (1931)’
    She was known as ‘The Girl with the Bee-Stung Lips.’
    She and Erich Von Stroheim fought constantly on the set of ‘The Merry Widow.’
    She married Prince David Mdivani who with his brothers turned out to be a poseur.
    She walked out on her MGM contract and then had difficulty obtaining roles.
    She ended up homeless for a time, sleeping on park benches.
    Sales of her authorized biography ‘The Self-Enchanted (1959)’ were very low as she was by then forgotten.
    She was a Ziegfeld Follies headliner.
    She was a frequent partner of Rudolph Valentino when they were exhibition dancers.
    Louis B. Mayer prevented anyone else from hiring her after she left MGM.
    She lost her fortune and custody of her son during her divorce from Prince David.

    Her biography was honest about her part in her career decline and subsequent poverty.
    She was but one of many rich and famous women (including Pola Negri and Barbara Hutton) fleeced by the Mdivani family.
