Marin Sais

1890 - 1971

Die Schauspielerin Marin Sais gehört zu den Pionieren des amerikanischen Films, ihr erster Film entstand bereits 1910 mit dem Titel "Twelfth Night" (10).

Begonnen hatte sie ihre Laufbahn jedoch beim Vaudeville in New York, ehe sie bei Vitagraph Studios ihren ersten Film drehte.
Danach ging sie zur Kalem Company und sie agierte in zahlreichen Filmen wie "Accidents Will Happen" (12), "The Kidnapped Conductor" (12), "In Peril of Their Lives" (12), "The Pony Express Girl" (12), "The Last Blockhouse" (13), "The Redemption" (13), "The Cheyenne Massacre" (13), "The Girl and the Gangster" (13), "The Invaders" (13), "The Man Who Vanished" (13) und "The Big Horn Massacre" (13).

Mitte der 10er Jahre erreichte sie den Höhepunkt ihrer Popularität und sie spielte in unterschiedlichen Genres wie Western, Komödien, Dramen und ab 1915 auch in einer Serie rund um die Figur eines weiblichen Detektives.

Bis Ende der 10er Jahre agierte sie unter anderem in den Produktionen "Trapped" (14), "The Master Rogue" (14), "The Quicksands" (14), "The Potter and the Clay" (14), "The Girl Detective" (15), "Ham in a Harem" (15), "The Closed Door" (15), "The Vanishing Vases (15), "The Secret Code" (15), "The Man on Watch" (15), "Black Magic" (16), "A Battle in the Dark" (16), "Border Wolves" (16), "The Black Rider of Tasajara" (17), "The Secret of Lost Valley" (17), "The Door in the Mountain" (17), "The Ghost of the Desert" (17), "The Vanity Pool" (18) und "The Gray Wolf's Ghost" (19). Bei vielen dieser Filme agierte sie neben dem Filmstar Hoot Gibson.

1920 heiratete Marin Sais den Westerndarsteller Jack Hoxie, den sie bereits 1916 bei Dreharbeiten kennenlernte.
Die beiden agierten in den kommenden Jahren oft zusammen in Westernfilmen und nach ihrer Scheidung 1925 blieb Marin Sais diesem Genre weiterhin treu.
Zu ihren Filmen dieser Jahre gehören "Dead or Alive" (21), "The Hellion" (24), "A Roaring Adventure" (25), "Men of Daring" (27), "A Son of the Desert" (28) und Come and Get It!" (29).

Mit dem Tonfilm agierte sie vermehrt in sogenannten Low-Budget-Filmen, wobei es sich mit wenigen Ausnahmen wieder um Westernfilme handelte.
Sie führte ihre Laufbahn bis Ende der 40er Jahre fort, zu ihren zahlreichen Auftritten gehören "The Fighting Cowboy" (33), "Circle of Death" (35), "Drums of Destiny" (37), "Phantom Gold" (38), "The Mad Empress" (39), "Sky Bandits" (40), "Saddlemates" (41), "The Iron Claw" (41), "Murder in Times Square" (43), "Enemy of Women" (44), "Girls of the Big House" (45), "Stagecoach to Denver" (46) und "Big Town After Dark" (47).
