About this scrapbook page:
Although Dutch-born silent screen femme fatale Jetta Goudal may be pretty much forgotten today.Arriving in America (N.W.C) following the WWI armistice (1918),“Jetta” purposely disguised her Dutch and Jewish ancestry and her age,passing herself off as "Jetta Goudal,"a Parisienne born in Versailles in 1901 and the daughter of a lawyer.She attracted immediate attention with her first two small film roles and caught the eye of legendary Cecil B. DeMille.
Design credits:
But,she was an unrepentant theatrical "grand dame" and possessed a fierce temper well known to the film community.The damage to her career and reputation,however,was sealed and she never recaptured her former glory.With the arrival of sound it was the end.Goudal married art director H.Grieve in 1930 and retired from the screen permanently 3 years later.They had no children.Plagued by health problems (heart condition)in the 1960s,she suffered a serious fall in 73 which left her an invalid.She died in 1985.

Another sad story of a would be beautiful actress - sounds like her temperament was her undoing. A beautiful page for her.
