About Clara Horton

Clara Horton was a trailblazing actress who made her mark in Hollywood during the Golden Age of cinema. Born on July 29, 1904, in New York City, Horton began her career as a stage actress before transitioning to film in the 1920s.

Horton quickly became known for her captivating performances and stunning beauty, earning critical acclaim for her roles in films such as "The Jazz Singer" and "The Broadway Melody." She was also a talented singer and dancer, often showcasing her skills in musicals and vaudeville shows.

Despite her success, Horton faced numerous challenges as a woman in the male-dominated film industry. She fought against typecasting and worked tirelessly to break down barriers for future generations of actresses.

Horton's personal life was just as fascinating as her career. She was married three times, including to fellow actor John Barrymore, and had a tumultuous relationship with her daughter, actress Diana Barrymore.

Throughout her life, Horton remained dedicated to her craft and continued to act well into her 80s. She passed away on September 21, 1995, leaving behind a legacy as one of Hollywood's most talented and resilient actresses.
