Biography

Dark-haired silent-screen actress Lillian Rich was plucked from Jack Hoxie Westerns to star as the man-eating, social-climbing Flora in Cecil B. DeMille's extravagant The Golden Bed (1925). She played her femme fatale in a blond wig and the New York Times thought she looked "extraordinarily beautiful." Rich did several pseudo-DeMille melodramas -- usually lolling about on tiger skins -- but her only other notable performance came as H. B. Warner's leading lady in the railroad melodrama Whispering Smith (1926). Rich ended her screen career playing society matrons in two-reel comedies of the early 1930s.
