Silent movie star, Alice Joyce, was born October 1, 1890 in Kansas City, Missouri and died October 9, 1955 in Los Angelas, California. Joyce was married three times, to actor Tom Moore (1883-1955), wealthy New Yorker James Regan (1893-1939), and to director Clarence Brown (1890-1987). Joyce and Brown divorced in 1945. She had two daughters, Peggy Harris and Alice Moore. Before appearing in films, Joyce was a fashion model and a telephone operator. During the 1910s, she was the leading lady in many short films for Kalem studios, which was later bought by Vitagraph Studios. Joyce was considered the “Madonna of the Screen”. Some of her most notable films are The Courage of Silence (1917), Stella Dallas (1925), and The Green Goddess (1925). Alice retired from the screen to raise her teenage daughters and to do stage work.
