The sister of screen ingenue Mabel Taliaferro, Edith Taliaferro was one of several Broadway dignitaries brought to the screen by Famous Players in 1915. But while the likes of Fannie Ward, Victor Moore, and Laura Hope Crews would enjoy successful careers in Hollywood, Taliaferro only graced three films, including Young Romance (1915), as a social-climbing department store clerk, and a version of Booth Tarkington's Conquest of Canaan (1916).
