    (November 9, 1895-February 13, 1968)
    Birth name is Mary Wayne Marsh
    Acted in ‘Ramona (1910),’ ‘Man’s Genesis (1912),’ ‘The Birth of a Nation (1915),’ ‘Intolerance (1916),’ ‘The Cinderella Man (1917),’ ‘The White Rose (1923),’ ‘The Rat (1925),’ ‘Over the Hill (1932),’ ‘The Grapes of Wrath (1940),’ ‘How Green Was My Valley (1941),’ ‘Three Godfathers (1948)’ and ‘The Searchers (1956)’
    The story that her aunt, an ex-chorus girl, got her started in films may have been studio hype.
    She was typecast by D.W. Griffith as a long suffering virgin.
    In a notorious scene from ‘The Birth of a Nation’ she jumps off a cliff to avoid being raped by a black man.
    Her career quickly went downhill when she left Griffith to work for Samuel Goldwyn.
    Goldwyn gave her the bizarre moniker ‘The Whim Girl.’
    Her stepfather was killed in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906.
    She got her break when she took a part Mary Pickford refused, because it required bare legs.
    Film critics often consider her to be one of the silent era’s best actresses.
    Vachel Lindsay wrote a poem in her honor.
    When he was a teenager, Ernest Hemingway claimed to be engaged to her.
    She made a comeback in the thirties, often playing memorable supporting roles for admirer John Ford.
