35 Gorgeous Photos of Virginia Valli in the 1920s

Born 1895 in Chicago, Illinois, American actress Virginia Valli appeared in films throughout the 1920s. She was an established star at the Universal studio by the mid-1920s. In 1924, she was the female lead in King Vidor’s southern gothic Wild Oranges, a film now recovered from film vault obscurity. She also appeared in the romantic comedy, Every Woman’s Life, about “the man she could have married, the man she should have married and the man she DID marry.”

Valli’s films were made between 1924 and 1927, and included Alfred Hitchcock’s debut feature, The Pleasure Garden (1925), Paid to Love (1927), with William Powell, and Evening Clothes (1927), which featured Adolphe Menjou. In 1925, she performed in The Man Who Found Himself with Thomas Meighan.

Her first sound picture was The Isle of Lost Ships with Jason Robards Sr. and Noah Beery Sr. in 1929. Her last film was in Night Life in Reno, in 1931. She suffered a stroke in 1966, and died two years later, aged 73, in Palm Springs.
