This is an original press photo. Lucile Watson (May 27, 1879 - June 24, 1962) was a Canadian actress. Watson began her career on the stage debuting on Broadway in the play Hearts Aflame in 1902. Her next play was The Girl With Green Eyes, the first of several Clyde Fitch stories. At the end of 1903, Lucile appeared in Fitch's "Glad of It". This play featured several young performers including Lucile who would move on to major Broadway or motion picture prominence; Robert Warwick, John Barrymore, Thomas Meighan and Grant Mitchell to say the least. For the rest of the decade she appeared in several more Fitch stories into the 1910s as Fitch would die in 1909. Sometime in the 1910s she was briefly married to silent film star Rockliffe Fellowes. Watson in her youth had an ordinate beauty but with a stern expression on her face. Photos taken during her Broadway years show a look that movie audiences would become accustomed to. It is not known if she cultivated this look for films or that she wanted to ward off a lot of male attention to her subtle beauty. Watson's first film role was in the 1916 silent film The Girl with Green Eyes, a film version of the Clyde Fitch play she had performed in on Broadway in 1902. She did not appear in another movie until 1930, when she had an uncredited role in The Royal Family of Broadway. Her marriage to Fellows produced no children.(Wikipedia)Photo measures 8.25 x 6.75inches. Photo is dated 06-06-1962.
