Actress. Born Harriet Mildred Jeffries, (Her sister was actress Mina Cunard Seymour.) Cunard made her Hollywood debut in 1908. Though hardly known today, Cunard was one of the many women who thrived in the business of the movies, acting in over 120 silent films, directing others, and writing more than 30 scripts. Playing opposite Francis Ford, she became known as the "Serial Queen" with her successful run as "Lucille Love, Girl of Mystery" and other popular roles. Cunard left the screen in 1925 after marrying stuntman Jack Shannon (A prior marriage to actor Joe Moore had ended in divorce.) She continued in films well into the sound era, but in increasingly smaller roles, retiring in 1945. Cunard is buried with her husband, actor Jack Shannon.
