~Wanda Hawley~

Born: July 30, 1895 in Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA
Died: March 18, 1963 in Los Angeles, California, USA
~Biography~
A discovery, it was claimed at the time, of Cecil B. De Mille, typical flapper Wanda Hawley loved
diamonds more than stolid Wallace Reid in The Affairs of Anatol (1921), the best of the three films she
made for the flamboyant director. Actually, Hawley had begun her screen career years before meeting De
Mille, and had appeared under the moniker of Wanda Petit opposite both Tom Mix and William S. Hart.
From Scranton, PA, the future screen star had entered the theatrical profession with an amateur group in
Seattle, WA, and, at least according to her official bio, later toured the U.S. and Canada as a singer. She
entered films in 1917 but her best years were in the early '20s when under contract to Paramount, she
starred or co-starred opposite the likes of Milton Sills, Jack Holt, and Wallace Reid. Like so many of her
contemporaries, Hawley's career waned in the latter part of the 1920s and her only sound films were a
couple of Grade-Z Westerns opposite Buffalo Bill Jr. (aka Jay Wilsey), released in 1931. She reportedly
later became a call girl in San Francisco.
