Stage veteran Julia Swayne Gordon was one of the most popular members of the Vitagraph Studios acting ensemble of the early 'teens. Highly respected for her versatility, she was also beloved throughout the studio for her support and encouragement of newcomers. The Vitagraph executives seldom expressed their gratitude to Gordon in words, but every so often she'd find an extra fifteen dollars in her paycheck. In the 1920s, Gordon was much in demand as a character actress; even casual silent-film fans will remember her moving portrayal of Richard Arlen's mother in Wings (1927). Making a successful switchover to talkies, Julia Swayne Gordon continued acting until her death in 1933.
