Mildred Harris was a star of the silent screen. She was one of Hollywood's most publicized figures in the silent days, when she was one of its highest paid stars.
She became Charlie Chaplin's first wife while still a teenager, living with him for five years before getting a divorce. A baby was born to the comedian and the actress, but died hours after birth.
Harris had begun her career at age 10 and became a child star. She later appeared in Universal's first all-talking picture, "Melody of Love," which was released in 1928.
