654) Grace Cunard

Grace Cunard (born Harriet Mildred Jeffries,1893 – 1967). American actress, screenwriter and film director. Her sister was actress Mina Cunard.
In an era when the fledgling film industry saw actors and other film studio personnel frequently pitch in to do multiple tasks, Cunard was no exception, and wrote close to one hundred screenplays. As well, between 1914 and 1921, she directed 11 films and produced two others. With age, her career shifted to leads in B-movies and secondary roles or bit parts in others. Nonetheless, she worked regularly until the mid-1940s, mostly at her home studio, Universal.
