Born 1895 in Sønderho, Denmark, Danish-American actress of Hollywood’s silent films Ann Forrest appeared in 33 movies between 1915 and 1925. According to Ruth Wing, author of the Blue Book of the Screen, Forrest enjoyed playing homely character roles, and her characters often wept during the film. However, wanting to capitalize on her beauty, producers later cast her in society dramas.

Wing wrote “Ann Forrest is ‘different’. She is different from most screen stars in personality and beauty. But the greatest difference lies in her achievement of cinema fame. Ann wept her way to stardom.”
Forrest died in 1985 at the age of 90. Take a look at these fabulous photos to see the beauty of a young Ann Forrest in the 1920s.
