first credited film role in the 1921 film The Fox. She obtained several more

roles that same year, appearing in nine films in 1921, and another five in

She would appear in seventeen more films by the time she received what is

today her best-known role, opposite Rudolph Valentino in the 1925 film Cobra.

Throughout the silent film era her career thrived. From 1925
