Who's Who in the Film World, 1914

Fazenda was discovered by a scout of Mack Sennett's when she was in a high school comedy show. She made her first film in 1915. She was best known as a character actor in silent films, playing roles such as a fussy old maid and a lady blacksmith. She left the films in 1921–1922 to perform vaudeville.[3] She transitioned into talking pictures and took on more serious roles.[2] The Old Maid, in 1939, was her last of nearly 300 movie appearances. Marriage[edit] In 1927, Fazenda married Hal B. Wallis, a producer at Warner Bros., and they remained married until her death. They had one son, Brent, who became a psychologist in Florida.[2] Death[edit] Fazenda died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Beverly Hills, California.[1] Hal Wallis was in Hawaii making a film and left immediately for home.
