Mae Murray(1889-1965) (Nicknames:The Gardenia of the Screen,The Girl with the Bee-Stung Lips /I think some journalists were already unpleasant!)She began studying dance at a young age.She joined the "Ziegfeld Follies" chorus line and moved up to headliner status by 1915.She played the top clubs in Paris and in America in an act that accentuated her dancing prowess.She played with the legendary Valentino in 2 films.Many of her films,containing dance sequences designed especially for her,were written and produced by her third husband.Married and divorced four times,Mae's movie career faded with the advent of sound,her voice being not particularly suited to talkies. She grew more eccentric over the years and was eventually forced to declare bankruptcy, living in abject poverty for the better part of her later life.Eventually, unable to take care of herself and in an impenetrable haze of dementia, Mae ended her days in a hospital.She died in her sleep (from a heart ailment).
