Who was Mildred Harris?

Mildred Harris was a leading American film actress during the early part of 20th century. She was also the first wife of Charlie Chaplin. Harris began her career in the film industry as a popular child actress when she was 11 years old. At the age of 15, she was cast as a harem girl in D. W. Griffith's Intolerance. She appeared as a leading lady through the 1920s but her career slowed with the advent of the "talkies". She was critically praised for No, No Nanette in 1930, had a few bit parts in the early 1940s, and made her last appearance in the posthumously released Having Wonderful Crime of 1945.
