Anita Page has died

Recommended Posts

LOS ANGELES (AP) ? Anita Page, an MGM actress who appeared in films with Lon Chaney, Joan Crawford and Buster Keaton during the transition from silent movies to talkies, has died. She was 98.

 

Page died in her sleep early Saturday morning at her home in Los Angeles, said actor Randal Malone, her longtime friend and companion.

 

Page's career, which spanned 84 years, began in 1924 when she started as an extra.

 

Her big break came in 1928 when she won a major role ? as the doomed bad girl ? in "Our Dancing Daughters," a film that featured a wild Charleston by Crawford and propelled them both to stardom. It spawned two sequels, "Our Modern Maidens" and "Our Blushing Brides." Page and Crawford were in all three films.

 

Page's daughter Linda Sterne said her mother had been good friends with Marion Davies and Jean Harlow, and for about six months in the 1930s lived as a guest in William Hearst's massive castle on the Southern California coast.

 

"She was the best mother I could have," Sterne said. "She was wonderful."
