A pioneering American screen actress, Leah Baird played Rebecca of York opposite King Baggot's dashing Ivanhoe for Carl Laemmle's IMP in 1913. She starred in countless other films for both the various Universal brands and for Vitagraph, and in 1918 she battled the insidious Hun in 15 episodes of the serial Wolves of Kultur. No longer in the bloom of youth by the mid-'20s, Baird retrenched and became a screenwriter, a line of work she had dabbled in as far back as 1913. She contributed to several so-so Clara Bow vehicles but sound put a damper on her endeavors and she retired from screen work. Baird returned to films in 1941 as a bit player and was fairly busy until after the war. Her last credited role came in the all-star Mike Todd extravaganza Around the World in Eighty Days in 1956.
