[FILM] Lois Moran (1909-1990) American film actress. Her career began in 1921, and Moran appeared in a couple of silent movies in the early 1920s. She is probably best known for her role, as Laurel Dallas, daughter of the title role in the 1925 film Stella Dallas. She appeared in early sound movies such as Behind That Curtain (1929), and some musical movies, such as A Song of Kentucky (1929), Words and Music (1929), and Mammy (1930). Like many actors and actresses from the silent film era, she did not make a successful transition to the talkies. She also had a brief affair with writer F. Scott Fitzgerald while he was married to Zelda Fitzgeral. He once remarked that she was "The most beautiful girl in Hollywood". She was also an inspiration for the character of Rosemary Hoyt in Fitzgerald's novel Tender is the Night (1934). In 1935, she married Clarence M. Young, Secretary of Commerce, and retired from Hollywood. Really nice letter talking about her career; mentions Lillian Gish, Betty Davis, Henry King the director of Stella, Colleen Moore, etc. ALS, Arizona, 1988, filling both sides of 7-1/4 x 10-1/2 stationery.
