Silent screen star Colleen Moore became recognized as one of the premier movie flappers of the day, thanks to her Dutch bob hairstyle, daringly short skirts and vibrant performance in "Flaming Youth" (1923). However, because all of her films were shot in black and white, moviegoers were not entirely aware of the elfin actress' most distinctive feature: she possessed one blue eye and one brown eye. Moore began her career in a diverse array of pictures for several short-lived companies before attaining notoriety at First National Films, which produced her biggest hits. At the height of her fame, Moore was one of the highest paid performers in Hollywood, but unlike later flapper icons Clara Bow and Louise Brooks, she was the "safe" one who briefly flirted with danger, but ultimately came back home. Moore stopped making movies before she had even reached middle-age and later generations probably remembered her more for the incredibly elaborate dollhouse she had commissioned during the late 1920s, which went on to tour the United States, delighting children and collectors. Although she retired from the screen over 50 years before she died, Moore earned herself a place in cinematic and cultural lore for her flapper image, which was a potent symbol of the Roaring Twenties and what that new era of societal change represented for the women of America.
