Warm, attractive, highly talented leading actress, popular in silent film in roles calling for quiet realism rather than slick glamour. Wilson played the female lead in several well-remembered action and epic films of the period such as "The Covered Wagon" (1923) and "The Vanishing American" (1925), but enjoyed a more memorable showcase with her superb work in the poignant title role of a lonely, put-upon young woman in William DeMille's "Miss Lulu Bett" (1921). She also played Daisy opposite Warner Baxter in the first film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" (1926).
