    As a child in Nome, Alaska, she performed in saloons dressed as a boy while playing a banjo.
    She was an alcoholic who was frequently typecast as drunks.
    Her drinking got to be so bad that she had to take a three year break in the 20's, preventing her from cementing 'star' status.
    She was a Broadway star in the 1910s and '20s.
    She successfully made the shift from silent films to talkies.
    She appeared as Joan Crawford's mother twice twenty years apart: in 1931's 'Laughing Sinners' and again in '53's 'Torch Song.'
    She received the 1955 National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actress for her roles in 'A Man Called Peter' and 'The View from Pompey's Head.'
    A number of serious car accidents left her in disabled health for much of her later life.
    The Reuben sandwich's name was reportedly coined after she visited Reuben's Restaurant and Delicatessen in New York City.
