HERE IS SOME INFO FROM WIKIPEDIA, "Helen Marguerite Clark was born in Avondale, Cincinnati, Ohio, the third child of Augustus "Gus" James and Helen Elizabeth Clark. She had an older sister, Cora, and an older brother named Clifton. Clark's mother Helen died on January 21, 1893. Her father worked in his self-owned successful haberdashery located in downtown Cincinnati before his death on December 29, 1896. Following the death, Clark's sister Cora was appointed her legal guardian and removed her from public school to further her education at Ursuline Academy.[1]

She finished school at age 16, decided to pursue a career in the theatre and soon made her Broadway debut in 1900. The

Clark made all but one of her 40 films with Famous Players-Lasky, her last with them in 1920 titled Easy to Get, in which she starred opposite silent film actor Harrison Ford.
