Renée Adorée
(September 30, 1898 – October 5, 1933)

Renée AdoréeRenée Adorée, born Jeanne de la Fonte, was a French actress who had appeared in Hollywood silent movies during the 1920s.

Born in Lille, Nord, France, she was the daughter of circus artists and who, by age five, was performing in the circus with her parents. In her teen years, she began acting in minor stage productions and toured Europe with her troupe. She was performing in Russia when World War I broke out and fled to London.

Fifteen years her senior, Tom Moore and his brothers were very successful Hollywood actors. Six weeks after their meeting, Adorée married Tom Moore on February 12, 1921 in his home in Beverly Hills, California. The marriage did not last, and in 1925 Ms. Adorée married a second time to Sherman Gill.

Despite her petite stature, Adorée's sensuous beauty and penetrating eyes made for a compelling presence on the black and white screen. By the end of 1930, she had appeared in forty-five films, the last four of them talkies. That year she was diagnosed with tuberculosis.

She died there, a few days after her 35th birthday, on October 5, 1933 in Tujunga, California. Adorée left an estate valued at $2,429 (in 2011 dollars $42,022.82).
She is interred in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Hollywood, California, Plot: Abbey of the Psalms, Crypt 219.
