Alice Lake was a film actress whose work in dramatic and comedic roles in silent films reportedly earned her $1,200 a week — a hefty sum by the day's standards — during the heyday of her career.
Lake costarred with some of the biggest celebrities of the day, appearing opposite Rudolph Valentino in "Uncharted Seas"; Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle in "Oh Doctor!" and "The Cook"; and Bert Lytell in "Blackie's Redemption" and "The Lion's Den." She also appeared on Broadway in "Erstwhile Susan" and other productions.
She married actor Robert Williams in 1924 after a whirlwind romance during which, The Times reported after news broke of the couple's engagement, she nursed him through a serious illness. The couple later divorced.
Lake's Hollywood career ended in the 1930s, and she died in 1967 at age 71 of an apparent heart attack at the Paradise Sanitarium rest home in Hollywood.
