Myrtle Stedman

1885 - 1938

Die Schauspielerin Myrtle Stedman begann ihre Laufbahn bereits 1897 auf der Bühne, wo sie im Chor für Stücke der leichten Oper mitsang.
In den nächsten Jahren avancierte sie zur Leadsängering verschiedener Shows, doch trotz des Erfolges entschied sie sich, ihre Musikkarriere zugunsten einer Filmlaufbahn aufzugeben.
Sie und ihr Ehemann und Schauspieler Marshall Stedman wurden von Selig Polyscope Co. 1910 unter Vertrag genommen.
In kürzester Zeit avancierte sie zu einer populären Filmdarstellerin in diesem jungen Medium und dank ihrer athletischen Fähigkeiten wurde sie auch in Abenteuerfilmen und Western eingesetzt.
Zu ihren ersten Filmen gehören "The Range Riders" (10), "A New York Cowboy" (11), "The Two Orphans" (11), "Two Men and a Girl" (12), "In Little Italy" (12), "Baby Betty" (12), "A Motorcylce Adventure" (12), "The Opium Smugglers" (12), "The Suffragette" (13), "The Bank's Messenger" (13), "The Law and the Outlaw" (13), "The Jealousy of Miguel and Isabella" (13), "The Lonely Heart" (13) und "Buster's Little Game" (13).
1914 wechselte sie zur Bosworth Company und sie konnte ihre Filmlaufbahn in den nächsten Jahren weiterhin sehr erfolgreich gestalten.
Zu ihren bekanntesten Arbeiten der nächsten Jahre gehören "The Country Mouse" (14), "Hypocrites" (15), "Help Wanted" (15), "Peer Gynt" (15), "The American Beauty" (16), "The World Apart" (17), "In the Hollow of Her Hand" (18) und "The Teeth of the Tiger" (19).
Anfangs der 20er Jahre entstanden ihre letzten grossen Filme mit "Harriet and the Piper" (20), "The Whistle" (21), "Reckless Youth" (22), "The Dangerous Age" (23) und "The Famous Mrs. Fair" (23). 
Danach ging ihre Popularität zurück und musste einer neuen Generation von Stars Platz machen.
Sie blieb dem Filmgeschäft aber weiterhin treu und verkörperte Nebenrollen in Produktionen wie "Lilies of the Field" (24), "Sally" (25), "Don Juan's Three Nights" (26), "The Black Diamond Express" (27), "The Irresistible Lover" (27) und "The Jazz Age" (29).
In den 30er Jahren entstanden ihre letzten filmischen Arbeiten mit "Beau Ideal" (31), "Forbidden Company" (32), "Klondike" (32), "San Francisco" (36), "The Great O'Malley" (37), "Confession" (37), "A Slight Case of Murder" (38) und "Accidents Will Happen" (38).
Nach einer Herzattacke verstarb Myrtle Stedman kurze Zeit später im Alter von 52 Jahren.
Ihr Sohn Lincoln Stedman wurde ebenfalls Schauspieler.
