Known for her beauty and talent, Maude Fealy was probably photographed more than any other actress of the early 1900s. She started her career at the age of 3 in the theater with her mother Margaret Fealy.

Wow! What an old-timey hottie. Maude Fealy was a silent film actress who also had a career in the talkies (movies that also have talking). Yes, you might remember Fealy from the 1911 silent film, Moths. Or from the 1914 silent flick, Frou Frou. Fealy first appeared in silent films in 1911 and made eighteen movies up until 1917. Then she went into semi-acting retirement. After that, she didn't perform in films again for another 14 years. During the gap in her film projects, Fealy became a playwright - and worked mostly in Chicago. Fealy died in 1971 at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills.
