Cleo Ridgely - Rotten Tomatoes

Cleo Ridgely



A beautiful blonde leading lady of the mid-1910s, Cleo Ridgley signed with Famous Player/Paramount in 1915 and went on to co-star with the era's greatest matinee idol, Wallace Reid, in no less than seven successful melodramas in 1915-1916, including The Chorus Lady (1915) in which Reid, as a detective, saves her from unscrupulous Broadway "wolves," and Yellow Pawn (1916), where he takes the blame for a murder in order to protect her good name and reputation. The team went their separate ways after Joan the Woman (1916), in which Ridgley played a supporting role as a courtesan, and she spent the remainder of her career in supporting roles. She became a bit part player and dress extra in talkies and can be spotted as late as 1948, playing a schoolteacher in Irene Dunne's I Remember Mama. Ridgley was the wife of comedy director James W. Horne.
