Adele DeGarde

Adele DeGarde (1899 – c. 1965), aka Adele De Garde, was an American silent film actress, who appeared in 114 films between 1908 and 1918. Born Adelaide De Gard in Brooklyn, New York, DeGarde was a Biograph Studios child star in the early part of the 20th century. Later she became a Vitagraph Studios leading lady. In 1939, she attended an Old Home Week at Ohrbach's in New York with other movie actors such as Mae Murray and June Elvidge. In the true sense of the word, Adele should have answered, "I'm going a-starring — but not along the Milky Way!" At the age of eighteen, Adele De Garde is a starlet who intends to be a regular star, a veteranet of the films, with ten years' experience behind her to urge her forward and enable her to cope with both big and little filmy things. Ten years ago, when pictures were looked at with a bit of apprehension, Adele (at the age of eight) began to appear in Vitagraph pictures. A year later, when thinking people realized that the Motion Pictures had evidently come to stay, they began to take an interest in the names of the players.
