You won the role of the very first Stella Dallas over 74 other actresses under consideration for the Samuel Goldwyn in 1925, and instantly became legendary as result.

Here you are, in the devastating final scene.

You trained as a circus trapeze artist as a child, discovered quite young by Belasco in the theater, starred on Broadway and began making silent films in 1913. Married three times, you were performing in vaudeville when you collapsed onstage in Philadelphia from a recurrence of cancer you’d been suffering with for two years. A plane flew you back to Los Angeles in 1932, where you died at Cedars of Lebanon that year, age 41.

Happy Birthday Charlotte Rae

the biography of him by Mark Harris is enthralling… who knew he was into crack cocaine – though i don’t think he shared that with Diane Sawyer?

forever one of the funniest women on the planet, uncannily youthful and until my dying day i will champion the hysterical film she did with Marlo Thomas written by her daughter Jeannie Berlin, IN THE SPIRIT (1990). Directed by acting guru Sandra Seacat, no one saw it and it was strictly THEIR loss.

here are her & Thomas impersonating c. 1990 hookers to shake down some criminal info from (always )working girl Melanie Griffith in her greatest onscreen moment
