Biography

From Wikipedia

Doris Pawn (December 29, 1894 – March 30, 1988) was an American actress who appeared in films of the silent era.

Director Sydney Ayres coveted Pawn as a leading lady early in her screen career. In 1916 she appeared in her first Fox Film feature, Blue Blood and Red, directed by Raoul Walsh. Studios were impressed with her personal charm and ability to act naturally. She was especially gifted in the art of pantomime.

In addition to Fox, Pawn made movies with Universal, Goldwyn, and Paramount Pictures. She returned to Fox in 1921 for the making of Shame. She starred alongside John Gilbert and Anna May Wong. Her final films were two dramas, Fools and Riches and The Hero, along with a western, The Buster. Each of these productions was released in 1923.

Pawn was first married to director Rex Ingram, but they divorced in the early 1920s. In 1917, she was injured on location in Mexico; a group of extras seized control of her car at gunpoint and told her they were taking her back to Mexico with them. As they were nearing the border, her co-star, George Walsh, passed the party in his auto. He sensed the situation, taking out his gun and threatening to kill the men if they did not stop. They fled from Pawn's car and quickly dispersed.

Doris Pawn died in La Jolla, California in 1988, aged 93.
