Lota Cheek in 1923:

Lota Cheek may sound like a made up name designed to be remembered,  however it was her real name: 

Wilmington Morning News - Jun 15, 1922

She was the daughter of Georgia farmer Leon Cheek. After winning a beauty contest in 1921, in which she was declared America's prettiest girl, she became a successful actress in New York City. In 1922, she was involved in a scandalous divorce case (her husband was simultaneously married to another woman). By 1925, she had remarried and took the name of her new husband, Sanders. The last record of her is from 1927, when she was featured in an ad for Colgate toothpaste.

Dorothy Mackaill in 1923:


More: 

Dorothy Mackaill was 11 when her parents separated; she then lived with her father. A rebellious teenager, Dorothy -- who had long wanted a career in the theater -- ran away to London and finally persuaded her father to pay for her board and lessons. Her first job was in the chorus; she then traveled to Paris, where she met a Broadway choreographer who got her a job with the Ziegfeld Follies, in New York. At the Follies, Dorothy became friends with ones of its stars, Marion Davies. Her later career in movies fluctuated from good films to pot boilers. She retired in 1955, thereafter living in Hawaii and making an occasional TV appearance. She resided in Honolulu for the last 35 years of her life and died there of liver failure in 1990. She was cremated and her ashes were scattered at sea off Waikiki Beach.
