Provenance: Thelma Parr was born in Oregon in 1903 and was a highly acclaimed motion picture actress considered by film critics to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood films. At the age of 14, Thelma moved to California with her parents and soon after the pretty brunette was discovered by producer Mack Sennett and became one of his bathing beauties. She married banjo player William E. Goman in 1925 and made her film debut that same year. Over the next three years she appeared in more than 30 short films. Although she was a gifted comedic actress, her acting career was tragically ended in March of 1928 by a car accident in which she received severe facial injuries. Ms. Parr's marriage ended two years later in 1930. She died in San Clemente CA in 2000 at age 93.
