Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mildred Hillary Davis (February 22, 1901 - August 18, 1969) was an American actress who appeared in many of Harold Lloyd's classic silent comedies and eventually became his wife. Davis was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and educated at the "Friends School" there. After several years spent studying, she traveled to Los Angeles in the hopes of securing a role in a film. After appearing in several small roles, she caught the attention of Hal Roach, who pointed her out to comedian Harold Lloyd. Lloyd was looking for a leading lady to replace Bebe Daniels, and cast Davis in his comedy short From Hand to Mouth in 1919. It would be the first of fifteen films they would star in together.show more
