A true screen pioneer, Evelyn Selbie entered films in 1912 as leading lady to the first true Western star, Broncho Billy Anderson. Although billed as "The Broncho Billy Girl," Selbie was actually Anderson's third onscreen counterpart, having followed Marguerite Clayton and Vedah Bertram. Filmed more or less by the seat of his pants at Niles Canyon near Oakland, CA, Anderson's one- and two-reel Westerns were extremely popular in the early 1910s and Selbie was soon considered a major star. When Marguerite Clayton returned in 1915, however, the already middle-aged Selbie quickly settled into a career as a supporting player, a career encompassing films, radio, and the legitimate stage, and lasting until at least 1941. She died of a heart attack at the Motion Picture House and Hospital's care facility in Woodland Hills, CA.
