Marvelous Tribute
(click red then blue buttons)



The first Award of History A lightning Rise
For 3 movies:
"Sunrise", "7th Heaven" and "Street Angel"

After her first movies in 1924, she played too short films with John Ford and William Wyler. Selected in the famous 13 Wampas in 1926 she became the main actress of the Fox.

She exploded in 1927, the great silent year, with Frank Borzage and FW Murnau, her 3 masterpieces and her first award in 1929

She continued her career with F Borzage and the delicious "Lucky Star" and with FW Murnau and "The 4 devils", sadly lost.

Of course in 1929-1930 she had to break the sound wall, and she succeed with great talent in the funny musical comedy "Sunnyside Up". So she started a talking career.

Until 1937 with the famous "A Star is Born", first of this Hollywood saga, and a 2d Award for Best Actress.

She retired in 1938, aged 33. To have a family life in a ranch.
