  • Notes 
    • Like many another pretty girl, Edna Murphy got to Hollywood via modeling. She was a top New York photographer's model when she made her film debut in 1918. By 1920 she had worked her way up to starring roles, and Fox put her in a serial, "Fantomas," that was quite well received. She made films for a couple of more studios before she finally signed with Pathe, which put her back in serials again. Her career never really got out of serials or B pictures, and, having married producer/director Mervyn LeRoy in 1930, she retired from the screen in 1933.
