Best remembered as Buster Keaton's long-time fiancée in Seven Chances (1927), blonde Ruth Dwyer had made her screen debut, in the 1919 serial The Lurking Peril, following a brief stint as a musical comedy soubrette. Apart from the Keaton classic, Dwyer's screen roles were unimpressive and she became a dress extra after the changeover to sound. The former ingenue was married to William Jackie, an actor best known for playing Oscar, the lunatic in the low-budget The Phantom (1931). Dwyer died at the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
