Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

The perfect silent screen ingenue, Lillian Hall played Beth in Little Women (1918) and was the perfect Cora Munro in Maurice Tourneur's beautiful version of Last of the Mohicans (1920). There were many other such roles but most of her subsequent films were eminently forgettable. A graduate of Brooklyn Business College and a stock company ingenue in Philadelphia prior to her screen debut in 1918, Hall retired in 1922 to marry screen actor Glenn Tryon. Her death in 1959 was reported as a suicide.
