Martha Mansfield was a silent film star and vaudeville actress, but she has gone down in history for meeting a terribly gruesome end.

A Promising Start

Born in 1899, Mansfield caught the acting bug at the age of 14. She fought for a role in a Broadway production of Little Women, and from there on out, there was no slowing down.

Mansfield worked as a model, appeared in the Ziegfeld Follies, and broke into Hollywood in 1920. She was on the fast-track to stardom, but little did she know, she only had three more years to make a name for herself.
