The lovely Leila HyamsFebruary 21, 2014
Anyway, Leila got my attention, as I simply loved her role in Freaks. She didn't had a long career and not much is known about her, yet I did found alittle bit of information about this movie star, who had a big succes in the 1920s as a silent movie star and in the talkies of the early 30s, until she decided she wanted to focus on her personal life.
Leila was born on May 1st in 1905 to two Vaudeville performers: John Hyams and Leila McIntyre. Leila appeared on stage already as a little child and in her teenager years she worked as a model. Leila became well known across the United States after appearing in newspaper advertisements. This led to her succes Hollywood.
