Betty Ross Clarke
This brown-haired, grey-eyed ingénue of the early 20's made her way to the screen via touring stock companies immediately upon completing her education. She was a vaudeville dancer, then had a small role on Broadway in 1917. Eventually, she would come to greater prominence on the London stage. During Betty's seven-year long absence from Hollywood (1924-31), she worked in England, filmed in Germany and toured Australia with her own production company in "The Ghost Train" and "The House of Glass". She remained 'down under' until 1929, having married ex-RAF pilot and banking scion Arthur Greville Collins (who, after the stock market crash of 1929 reinvented himself in Hollywood as a motion picture director and dialogue director). Since she had been performing successfully in Britain for several years, Australian media erroneously assumed Betty to be English, though she hailed from Langdon, North Dakota. At one time in her childhood, she had lived with her family on an Indian reservation.
