Miriam Seegar
Birth: Sep. 1, 1907
Greentown
Howard County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jan. 2, 2011
Pasadena
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actress. One of the last performers to have appeared in silent films as an adult, she starred in a number of British and Hollywood features of the late 1920s and early 1930s. Raised in the midwest, she joined an itinerant theatrical troupe as a teenager and eventually ended up in London where she appeared in the West End presentation of "Crime". She made her silver screen bow in 1928's "The Price of Divorce" (which was not released until later adapted for sound as "Such is the Law"), and later that same year earned top billing as Stella Nelson in "Valley of the Ghosts". Returning to America, she had turns in roughly a dozen early talkies including "Clancy in Wall Street", "Big Money" and "The Dawn Trail" (all 1930). Miss Seegar retired from films after the 1932 "False Faces" and "Out of Singapore", remaining in the Los Angeles area where she raised her children and later worked as an interior designer. She died of the complications of advanced age. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
