Corinne Griffith, born Corinne Mae Griffin on November 24, 1894, was an American actress, producer, author, and businesswoman. She began her career in silent films during the 1910s and became one of the highest-paid stars of the silent era. Griffith appeared in over 60 films and was known for her beauty, talent, and versatility in roles ranging from drama to comedy. Some of her notable films include "The Tower of Lies" (1925), "The Garden of Eden" (1928), and "Lilies of the Field" (1930). She received critical acclaim for her performances in these and other films. In addition to her acting career, Griffith was also involved in film production and authored several books, including her autobiography titled "Papa's Delicate Condition," which was later adapted into a film starring Jackie Gleason. After retiring from acting in the early 1930s, Griffith focused on her business ventures and became a successful real estate investor. She passed away on July 13, 1979.
