Hawley was one of the biggest stars of the silent era, receiving as much, if not more fan mail than Gloria Swanson - a superstar of that time. She rose to stardom in Cecil B. DeMille films and later starred in films for director Sam Wood. In the 1920s Wanda was accused of being drunk while on stage and was sued for $50,000 by her producer, for breach of contract. She was in such a state of intoxication that the curtain was dropped while she was on stage. With the advent of sound, Hawley's career ended.
