Interesting! That's the first I've heard of this actress. What an unusual name. Maybe she is from Valhalla!

I wonder if The Hidden Valley is extant?

She looks so different from other actresses of the era. I wonder why that is?

She does look more modern, doesn't she? She's got a very different look than other silent film stars --- very exotic.

I think Cleo Ridgely was great!! She rode across the country with her husband to advertise for Motion Picture Story Magazine.

I've been looking around to see if it might be—I thought there might be a chance, since it was a Thanhouser production, and many of theirs are extant—but alas, no evidence that it is. I wonder if any of her films are extant.

Parts of the film still survive in the Australian film archive, and there may be a print in the Hungarian film archive, but it's in the presumed lost category.
