Myrtle Gonzalez (September 28, 1891 - October 22, 1918)

Pretty much every day I go to Wikipedia’s births and deaths page and scan for anyone associated with silent films. Which is how I learned about Myrtle Gonzalez about five minutes ago, so bear with me if much of this is paraphrased or quoted from Wikipedia!

Myrtle Gonzalez is considered by many to be “Hollywood’s first Latin and Hispanic movie star actress.” She acted in nearly eighty films between the years 1913 and 1917, and often played an energetic, outdoorsy type. She retired in 1917 upon her marriage to actor/director Allen Watt, and died in the Spanish flu pandemic late the following year.

I’d love to find a greater variety of photos of her, so hopefully I can track some good quality ones down somewhere. Happy birthday, Myrtle Gonzalez.

Es considerada una de las máximas estrellas del cine mexicano, y de Hollywood durante la era del cine mudo y principios del sonoro. Su rostro es considerado uno de los más perfectos y sus interpretaciones la ubican como una de las mejores actrices de la época de oro del cine mexicano.
