Mona Lisa - Rotten Tomatoes

Mona Lisa



A rather enigmatic actress, Mona Lisa (born Gloria Guinto) is remembered, if at all, for the three films she did for the silent era's leading woman director, Lois Weber: To Please One Woman (1920), What's Worth While? (1921), and Too Wise Wives (1921). The latter is still around today and reveals a charming, dark-haired actress whose appearance actually rather resembles the famous painting, from which she obviously chose her screen moniker. She later played a murderess (named "Ishtar Lane" no less) in a 1922 Corinne Griffith melodrama, Divorce Coupons, and a chorus girl in Notoriety (1922), which featured a young Rod La Rocque. Mona Lisa's only "talkie" appearance seems to have been a bit part in Sucker Money (1933), a cheap exploitation melodrama helmed by yet another prominent woman director, Dorothy Davenport (Mrs. Wallace Reid).
