In researching my lobby card collection, I have found conflicting information regarding the identity of the actress who is pulled up by her hair by Lon Chaney in “The Penalty” (1920).
IMDb identifies her as Doris Pawn:

Wikipedia identifies her as Ethel Grey Terry (second photo on right side):

Having watched the film on DVD, Doris Pawn plays Barbary Nell, a criminal associate of Blizzard, the Lon Chaney character. Ethel Grey Terry plays Rose, the undercover agent who falls in love with Blizzard. Therefore, I suspect the hair-pulling victim is an uncredited actress who can’t be identified. Can anyone help solve this mystery?
