Biography

Delicately pretty, charming American silent-screen heroine, popular in the 1920s in mostly light fare. Bellamy's most important film is arguably the landmark John Ford Western, "The Iron Horse" (1924). She continued on into the early days of the sound period (probably her best-remembered feature from this period is the 1932 haunting low-budget horror film "White Zombie") but her status quickly waned.
