  • A former Miss Hollywood and a 1924 WAMPAS Baby Star, American actress Hazel Keener is remembered as the vamp in Buster Keaton's The Freshman (1925) and as cowboy star Fred Thomson's leading lady in six above-average Westerns released by FBO. A former member of the Pasadena Community Players, Keener doubled for leading lady Katherine MacDonald and appeared in Harry Langdon two-reelers under the name Barbara Worth. In an effort to escape B-Westerns, she returned to that moniker in the late 1920s, but without much success. When offers even for cheap Westerns dried up in the early 1930s, Keener turned to playing bit parts, essaying a variety of secretaries, nurses, telephone operators, and mothers in hundreds of films until the 1950s. She later became a lay minister with the Church of Religious Science.
