Biography | show moreshow less
Grace Cunard (1893-1967), born Harriet Jeffries, made her first silent film in 1910. In an era when studios expected their employees to fill multiple roles, Cunard continued to act while writing 100 screenplays, directing 11 films and producing two, between 1914 and 1921. Acting was her forte, however, and beginning in 1914 she starred in a series of successful serials for Universal: Lucille Love, Girl of Mystery, The Broken Coin and Peg o' the Ring, among others. She acquired the moniker "Queen of the Serials." Her roles diminished as she grew older, but Cunard remained in films, mostly serials, until 1946. Her second marriage, from 1925 until her death, was to stuntman Jack Shannon.
