Biography

When the fair Eleanor Fair was elected a WAMPAS Baby Star in 1924, she had already been in films since 1919 and in vaudeville before that. A highly variable actress, she was capable of great things when provided with the proper direction. She did some of her best work under contract to Cecil B. DeMille, appearing in such DeMille-produced fare as Yankee Clipper (1927) and Let 'Er Go Gallagher (1927). From 1926 to 1929, she was the wife of another DeMille contractee, William "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd. Reduced to minor roles in the talkie era, Elinor Fair left the screen in 1934, spending the rest of her life in virtual anonymity.
