This vintage real photo postcard features British actress, Alma Taylor (1895-1974). She began her career as a child actress, making her screen debut in 1907. Taylor had brown hair, blue eyes, and a great deal of charm. She appeared in more than 150 film roles during her performing career. She was one of Britain’s major film stars during the 1910’s and early 1920’s. In 1915, she was voted the most popular British performer in a major magazine poll. Charlie Chaplin claimed second place. Most of her silent career was with producer, Cecil Hepworth. He refused to let her wear makeup in any of his films. After 1932, she acted only occasionally. The photograph on this postcard was taken while Taylor was under contract with Hepworth Pictures. (SOLD)
