Died: 12 June 1981, Los Angeles, California, USA

Evalyn Knapp began her film career at the end of the silent era in 1929, appearing several short films. She was quickly elevated in the business to leading lady, starring alongside John Wayne, James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson. She was also successful in the 1933 film serial 'The Perils of Pauline'.
