My own actors library
Was born at 15 July 1893 in York, Western Australia, Australia . Died at 14 May 1969, Malibu, California, USA (heart attack)

Australian-born Enid Bennett (her sisters, 'Catherine Bennett (I)' and 'Marjorie Bennett' , were also actresses) started her career onstage in Sydney. She became a well-regarded stage actress there, andeventually made her way to New York to conquer Broadway. Broadway,however, wasn't particularly interested in being conquered by MissBennett, and it took her several months to find any work at all. Finally, her "English" (actually Australian) accent got her a job in"Cock of the Walk".

She was seen there by film producer'Thomas H. Ince' , who signed her to a contract and brought her toHollywood. She married twice, both of her husbands being top Hollywooddirectors: 'Fred Niblo' and 'Sidney Franklin (I)' . Her lastfilm was The Big Store (1941) with 'The Marx Brothers' , inwhich she had an uncredited bit part as a clerk, and she retired fromthe movie business soon afterward. She died of a heart attack inMalibu, CA, in 1969.
