Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Juliette Compton (1899-1989) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. Columbus, GA born actress modeled for illustrators including Harrison Fisher and appeared in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1920. She followed up with work on the London stage and then Compton's early movie years, 1924-29, were spent in British film releases that included Nell Gwyn (1926). Compton was so associated with London that most the publicity accompanying her return to America made a point of remarking that the actress with the British accent was actually from Georgia! She is best remembered today supporting roles in pre-Code era releases such as Ladies of Leisure (1930), Devil and the Deep (1932), The Match King (1932), Peg o' My Heart (1933), Berkeley Square (1933), as well as the classic The Count of Monte Cristo (1934), and her final film appearance for Alexander Korda in That Hamilton Woman (1941).
