"Over the course of film history, many actresses have been dubbed "queens" of the "silver screen." Yet the first actress to be called the "Queen of the Movies" has been all but forgotten by modern filmgoers. Beverly Pearl Bayne skyrocketed to film success as a high school student in 1912. Within a matter of months, she was costarring with some of Hollywood's leading men, and in 1915, she and her perennial costar Francis X. Bushman were crowned "Queen and King of the Movies." Bayne's personal life, including her scandalous breakup of Bushman's existing marriage, was often as dramatic as her stellar career, spanning the silent screen, vaudeville, and the legitimate theater.
