Barbara Bedford

Recommended Posts

Barbara Bedford (19 July 1900—25 October 1981) was born in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin and was educated in Chicago, where she graduated from Lake View High School.

She felt the urge to appear on the silver screen at that time and immediately set out for Hollywood, where she impressed Lambert Hillyer, William S. Hart's director, by her unusual beauty and charm. Despite the fact that she had no stage or screen experience, he cast her for a role in Hart's The Cradle of Courage (1920). She starred in the 1927 silent film "Mockery" with Lon Chaney. Her career declining after the switch to sound, she signed with MGM in 1936 to play bit and extra parts. Her last known film appearance was in 1945.

She died in Jacksonville, Florida, October 25, 1981.
