I came across this beautiful picture of actress Alice Joyce, and it intrigued me. She is beautiful, isn't she? They called her the Madonna of the Screen, and her photos reflect that. She also had the unusual distinction of leaving movies not once, but twice, in order to raise her children, and still coming back and having a successful career. That's almost unheard of for women in film today.
The photo, left, is from 1913 - the year she won a poll for most popular film actress - and I love it. Check out her website here to see more beautiful photos of her.
