A 1928 Wampas Baby Star best remembered for replacing Jobyna Ralston in Harold Lloyd's Speedy
(1928), Ann Christy (born Gladys Cronin) was discovered by comedian Bobby Vernon while visiting a
movie studio. Contracted by comedy specialist Al Christie, who renamed her in honor of himself, Christy
became the screen's typical Irish colleen, pretty and wistful. Her burgeoning career, sadly, was derailed
by a serious automobile accident that necessitated plastic surgery. After appearing in a couple of Mack
Sennett two-reelers with newcomer Bing Crosby and several low-budget melodramas of little or no
consequence, she retired to marry millionaire Robert Moore Jr. The couple settled on what was described
as a 500,000-acre Texas ranch and Ann Christy later pursued a career restoring such historical buildings
as the former Tombstone home of Virgil Earp.
