Anita Stewart was a film star of the silent screen.

She left school to make her first film in the old Vitagraph Studios in New York. Her first fame was in the title role of "The Goddess" and by 1919 she was in Hollywood playing leading roles.

Her better known successes of the 20s included "A Million Bid," "The Girl Phillippa," "In Old Kentucky," "Midnight Romance," "The Great White Way," "Never the Twain Shall Meet" and "Playthings of Destiny."

Her leading men were Wally Reid, Thomas Meighan and others whose names are not even a memory to the present generation.

With the advent of "talkies" and her marriage to George Converse, a New York millionaire, Miss Stewart retired from acting. She wrote several books, best know of which was "The Devil's Toy," published in 1934.
