Actress. Born Virginia Flugrath, she was a successful performer during the silent film era, appearing in over one-hundred motion pictures. She made her screen debut in “Molly the Drummer Boy” (1914), followed by being billed as lead actress in "Gladiola Bain" (1915). In top demand, she had leading roles in “The Innocence of Ruth” (1916), “Some Bride” (1919), “Glass Houses” (1922), “Winds of Chance” (1925) and “Home Struck” (1927). Unsuccessful making the transition to the talkies, her last film was “One Splendid Hour” (1929). For television, she appeared in “Lux Theatre” and “My Three Sons”. She returned to the public eye briefly in a documentary about actor Buster Keaton “Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow” (1987), with whom she appeared in many films. She died of heart failure at age 90.
