A blonde, bob-haired cornflower of the silent screen, Laura La Plante entered films in 1919 and got her first big break a year later supporting Charles Ray in "The Old Swimmin' Hole". The wholesome-looking ingenue was signed by Universal in 1922, staying with that company until 1930. While she never became as big a star as Norma Talmadge or Clara Bow, La Plante starred in scores of successful films and was a reliable and agreeable player throughout the 20s. She made a series of Westerns with Hoot Gibson in 1922 and 1923, and by later in the decade was starring in her own vehicles, such as "Smouldering Fires" and "Young Ideas" (both 1924), "The Beautiful Cheat" (1925), "Skinner's Dress Suit" (1926), and the horror/comedy "The Cat and the Canary" (1927).
