Vera Sisson was an American actress of the silent era. She
appeared in 79 films between 1913 and 1926.
She made her movie debut as an extra in 1913 and shot to fame as the
leading lady of cowboy superstar J. Warren Kerrigan in seven very
successful westerns, beginning with "A Bogus Bandit" (1915).
Sisson went on to enjoy top billing in such melodramas as "The Iron
Will" (1916), "The Guilt of Stephen Eldridge" (1916), and
"Fit for Burning" (1916), but her popularity was brief and she
soon slipped into supporting roles.
Perhaps her most noteworthy film today is "The Married
Virgin" (1918), in which she appeared with a pre-stardom Rudolph
Valentino. Sisson's 79 credits also include "The Storm"
(1915), "The Hidden Spring" (1917), and "The Heart of
Youth" (1919). She retired from performing in 1921 to marry
actor-director Richard Rosson, but returned for a small part in
"Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" (1926).
