Beautiful Photos of American Actress Alma Rubens During Her Career

Born 1897 in San Francisco, American actress Alma Rubens began her career in the mid 1910s. She quickly rose to stardom in 1916 after appearing opposite Douglas Fairbanks in The Half-Breed. For the remainder of the decade, she appeared in supporting roles in comedies and drama.

In the 1920s, Rubens developed a drug addiction which eventually ended her career. Shortly after her release from jail on charges of cocaine possession, she contracted a cold that quickly developed into lobar pneumonia and bronchitis. She fell into a coma at the Los Angeles home of her friend, Dr. Charles J. Pflueger.

Rubens died in 1931 at the age of 33. For her contribution to the motion picture industry, she has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame located at 6409 Hollywood Blvd. Take a look at these vintage photos to see the beauty of young Alma Rubens during her career.
