Happy 100th Birthday Faye McKenzie and a Hollywood First!

Unread post by salus » Wed Feb 07, 2018 11:45 pm

Within 2 weeks Faye McKenzie turns 100, what makes this more remarkable is that she made her silent screen debut in the film Station Content (1918) starring Gloria Swanson. She made 5 more silent films after that and a career full of talkies. She will be the first actor/actress who is alive a century (100 years) after her film debut, i don't think anyone else has that distinction.

She is proably the last actor/actress alive who appeared in a film in the 1910's.

Her dad Bob sold Laurel and Hardy a boat in SAPS AT SEA. Faye's Dad and Mom are fairly ubiquitous in silent film comedy.

Does anybody know if she's at the Actor's Home in Woodland Hills? 100 years after her film debut and still living.
