Biography by Hal Erickson

Brunette, baby-faced screen actress Anne Cornwall managed to remain in the "ingenue" category for nearly ten years after her film debut in 1919. Cornwall's most celebrated silent-screen appearance was as Buster Keaton's co-ed girlfriend in College (1927). She made her talking picture bow as one of the two flirtatious lassies picked up by sailors Laurel and Hardy in Men O' War (1929). Thereafter, her film appearances were scattered and generally minor. Anne Cornwall briefly reappeared before the public eye in 1957, when she made the personal-appearance rounds with her old co-star Buster Keaton on the occasion of the Paramount biopic The Buster Keaton Story.
