Maude Fealy – Biography – Filmography – Movies – New York Times

From All Movie Guide: The daughter of veteran actress/teacher Margaret Fealy, American silent screen actress Maude Fealy (née Hawk) was at one point (1913-1914) positioned as a strong competitor to Mary Pickford. Highly publicized by the Thanhouser Company of New Rochelle, NY, the dark-haired, angelic Fealy fell short of the expectations in the end, however. Although some of her films — Moths (1913), The Runaway Princess (1914), Frou-Frou (1914) — were popular enough, audiences simply failed to warm up to the actress’ glacial beauty*. Fealy and her husband James Durkin left Thanhouser in late 1914, and although she starred for other companies, often in her own screenplays, she was always more appreciated on the legitimate stage.

*Ed. note: What a bummer.
