A graduate of the Children's Professional School in New York City, Massachusetts-born Pauline Curley
reportedly made her screen debut at age ten in a couple of one-reelers produced in 1913 by Wray
Physioc. After appearing on Broadway in Polygamy (1914-1915) and touring with A Daddy by Express,
Curley became a leading lady for Harold Lockwood at Metro, acted opposite Douglas Fairbanks in Bound
in Morocco (1918), and was the focal point of all the skullduggery in two Vitagraph serials with Antonio
Moreno, The Invisible Hand (1920) and The Veiled Mystery (1920). But despite her obvious appeal and a
breezy personality, Curley somehow missed stardom and became instead the favorite leading lady of
low-budget cowboy heroes. In Western after dusty Western, often filmed under the most strenuous
conditions in backwoods California hamlets, the actress gamely played romantic scenes with such
forgotten cowboy stars as Leo Maloney, Bill Patton, Fred Church, and Kit Carson. Due to their longer
shelf-life, several of these obscure, independently produced oaters are available today, including The
Desert Secret (1924), in which Curley picturesquely drives her touring car right into an incredibly
cheap-looking saloon set, thus permanently ending a furious brawl between Bill Patton and the pug-ugly
Lew Meehan. A true pioneer of independent Westerns, the actress retired at the advent of sound.
