Janet Gaynor(1906-1984)After graduating from high school in San Francisco,she moved to L.A and enrolled at a Hollywood secretarial college.Eager to get into movies,she started working as an extra in comedy shorts.In 1925,she was hired by Fox.Janet received the first Oscar for best actress.She was to become one of the biggest stars at Fox.She was teamed with Charles Farrellin 11 films altogether as she went from "the World's Sweetheart" to "America's favorite love-birds".When sound came in,Janet did not miss a beat since her voice translated well to sound.In most of these films,including the musical talkie Sunnyside Up (1929),she played the poor little waif who falls for Farrell.By 1934,she was Hollywood's top box office attraction.Fox and Janet began to disagree on the roles that were assigned to her and as her popularity waned,the roles became worse.She left Fox in 1936 but gave such a great performance in A Star is born (1937) that she was nominated for an Academy Award.
