Breamer, Sylvia, -1943.; Motion picture actors and actresses.; Australia.
Sylvia Breamer is a name now almost forgotten in film history, yet once she seemed destined to reach the top of the Hollywood acting profession. In 1918 the American fan magazine Photoplay hailed her "one of the acting finds of the year... Dusky, sensuous, sweet, a facile mirror to all of the voluptuous and most of the tender emotions..." Beautiful, talented and dedicated to her craft, Sylvia starred in films for such distinguished actors as Cecil B. De Mille, Maurice Tourneur, Sidney Franklin and Edwin Carewe. Who was Sylvia?, based on extensive original research, tells for the first time the enthralling life story of one of the first Australian born Hollywoods stars.
