Anita Page costarred with some of the giants of film — including Lon Chaney, Ramon Novarro, Buster Keaton and Joan Crawford — at the height of her career.

She costarred in "The Broadway Melody," the 1929 film that was the first talking movie to win the best picture Academy Award. Her performances in "Telling the World," "Our Dancing Daughters" — one of three films she appeared in with Crawford — and "While the City Sleeps" with Chaney made her a star in 1928.

By the late 1920s, the petite, blond actress was reportedly receiving 10,000 fan letters a week. Italian dictator Benito Mussolini was said to be a regular correspondent.
