~Biography~
Dimpled American silent-screen comedian Ruth Hiatt starred opposite Raymond McKee in Mack Sennett's
1926 Our Gang rip-off, The Smith Family series. By then, the 20-year-old actress was already a tried and
true veteran, having begun her screen career at the age of nine with the Lubin Company in 1915. Voted a
1924 WAMPAS Baby Star by the Hollywood publicists (along with, among others Clara Bow), Hiatt starred
opposite Lloyd Hamilton and Harry Langdon. In her feature debut, she was His First Flame (1927)
(Langdon's of course) and was then teamed with strong-man Joe Bonomo in The Chinatown Mystery
(1928), a fast and furious serial made for pennies by Poverty Row entrepreneur Trem Carr. In a (posed)
scene-still from this hair-raising chapterplay, Bonomo is seen attempting to rescue Hiatt from a
fast-approaching train, and she looks much the worse for wear. Hiatt, whose career in comedy
two-reelers lasted well into the '30s and included The Three Stooges' Men in Black (1933), was married
three times and eventually retired from the screen in the early '40s to operate a professional makeup
business.
