Lead and supporting player from 1917 who first gained attention for her performance in Erich Von Stroheim's mammoth "Greed" (1924). With the emergence of sound Pitts established herself as an endearingly daffy comedienne, often in support of Thelma Todd or in tandem with Slim Summerville. Pitts' trademark wailing voice and fluttering hands were last seen on screen in Stanley Kramer's 1963 film, "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World."
