Bess Flowers

Highest Rated: 100% Hollywood (1923)

Lowest Rated: 33% The Mummy's Ghost (1944)

Birthday: Nov 23, 1898

Birthplace: Sherman, Texas, USA

A tall, poised actor who began in silent films in the early 1920s, Flowers played the female lead in minor films ranging from a version of the children's perennial "Laddie" to a number of Westerns including "Glenister of the Mounted" and "Hands Across the Border" (all 1926). She regularly played supporting roles as well, and by the time sound fully took over she was working entirely in this capacity. Flowers soon was reduced to bit player and extra but, ironically, what seemed like a decline proved to bring her lasting fame.
