She is mostley forgotten now but she was famous. The Docks of New York ,Street Girl ,Weary River And The Great Gabbo are the films that show off her talent.She played Cherry Malotte in 1931 with Gary Cooper in The Spoilers.I am dying to see this version,The Marlene Dietrich and John Wayne version is the only one we ever see on tv.I am a fan of Compson.She can make you cry with her.
Betty Compson had ups and downs in a film career that started in 1915. By the late 20s she was a big star and she moved into talkies with no problem. Big hits like The Docks of New York (silent), The Barker (silent with talking sequences), Weary River and The Great Gabbo (talkies) made her a popular star of the day.
