The "Grand Old Lady" of early silent films, veteran touring company actress Mary Maurice (born Birch) spent nearly her entire 1910-1918 screen career with the new York-based Vitagraph company where, on and off the screen, she "mothered" everyone from the Taldmadge sisters to Jean, "the Vitagraph Dog." She was especially effective as James Morrison's mother in the studio's great preparedness film The Battle Cry for Peace (1915).
