Using her real moniker of Camille Ankewich, this silent screen supporting actress entered films with Paramount in the mid-1910s but by the time she essayed her best-remembered role, that of Conway Tearle's demented wife in Stella Maris (1919), she had become Marcia Manon. Stella Maris became a tour de force for Manon, whose vicious beating of Mary Pickford remains one of the melodrama's highlights. Manon retired at the advent of sound.
