With little more than her unusual name as a recommendation, exotic-looking silent screen actress Derelys Perdue had taken Hollywood by storm in a stage presentation entitled Attila and the Huns -- with Ramon Novarro as Attila and Derelys one of the Huns. She danced with Novarro in a couple of minor films and was voted a 1923 WAMPAS Baby Star by the Hollywood publicists. Perdue's big chance came as the villainess in a Warner Bros serial, A Dangerous Adventure (1922). But according to Harry Warner's granddaughter, Perdue did not get along with the star, Grace Darmond, and the two women battled it out for real in several scenes, nearly tearing each other's hair out by the roots along the way. Despite this setback, Perdue continued to appear in a long series of mostly inferior melodramas. The Last Man on Earth, from 1924, at least had an interesting plot, something about a plague eliminating all males above the age of 14 and leaving Perdue to run the presidency of the United States all by her pretty and hopelessly naive self. If her films weren't bad enough, Perdue's boss, future presidential father Joseph P. Kennedy, insisted on changing her name to the more palatable Ann Perdue. She sued him, lost, and ended her screen career in 1929.
