Clara Kimball Young

Clara Kimball Young, (September 6, 1890 – October 15, 1960),  was an American film actress, who was highly regarded and publicly popular in the early silent film era. A tall, dark-haired, full-figured gal that was a popular type of the early 20th century, Clara played both conventional leading ladies and light comedy, the latter of which she excelled at. She quickly became a top star at Vitagraph, ranking seventeenth in a 1913 popularity poll of stars that was topped by Kalem's Alice Joyce.
