Beautiful Photos of American Actress Margaret Livingston in the 1920s

Born 1895 in Salt Lake City, Utah, American actress Margaret Livingston made her debut in films in 1916. She made over 50 films during the “silent era,” most notably in F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927), and a further 20 films after she successfully made the transition to sound film in 1929, including Smart Money starring Edward G. Robinson and James Cagney. She occasionally dubbed voices for some other actresses, including Louise Brooks for The Canary Murder Case (1929).

Livingston was a guest on William Randolph Hearst's yacht the Oneida during the weekend in November 1924 with film director and producer Thomas Ince, who later died of heart failure. In the Peter Bogdanovich film The Cat’s Meow (2001), Livingston, played by Claudia Harrison, is depicted as having an affair with Ince at the time of his death.

Livingston retired from film acting in 1934. She spent the remainder of her life investing in oil ventures and real estate, and was a partner in the construction of the Colonial House in West Hollywood, California. She died in Warrington, Pennsylvania in 1984, at age 89.

Take a look at these vintage photos to see the beauty of young Margaret Livingston in the 1920s.
