One of Mack Sennett's less-heralded Bathing Beauties, blonde Myrtle Lind nevertheless did earn her very own starring vehicles, although with Triangle and not Sennett. After being briefly engaged as the leading ingénue of the King Bee/Billy West comedies, in which she was often partnered with the young Oliver Hardy, Lind signed with Triangle and co-starred opposite John Gilbert in the wild youth melodrama Nancy Comes Home (1919). It should have been her breakthrough but Lind instead announced her retirement from the screen in order to marry. She was back, playing Gareth Hughes' ill-fated wife in the Billie Dove melodrama Forget Me Not (1922), but that role proved to be the swan song for this erstwhile Sennett starlet.
