Actress. Mitchell began her career in 1909 playing stock in Portland. Working in films, she appeared a number of times with Western star William S. Hart playing a leading role in those films. She then appeared in "Diamond from the Sky" in 1916" which proved to be a disaster for everyone concerned and with only four chapters completed, it was the shortest serial in history. After that, her roles became smaller and she appeared in a handful of films through the mid-30s and in several bit parts during the early 1950s. During her retirement, she managed an apartment in Los Angeles and it was in her apartment that a disgruntled houseboy strangled and killed the former actress. Mitchell appeared in 64 films. Interesting to note that in her will, she specified that she is never to have a final resting place - this must explain the reason she's still lying in a receiving vault and not in a permanent resting place.
