Elinor Virginia Martin (née Crowe;[2][3] December 21, 1903 – April 26, 1957),[4] known professionally as Elinor Fair, was an American motion picture actress.

Early years

Elinor Virginia Crowe was born on December 21, 1903, in Richmond, Virginia to Harry Joseph Crowe, a salesman, and Helen Snowden Jones. Her older brother Donald died in 1904 just four months short of his third birthday. During her childhood her family relocated multiple times.


When Fair was elected a WAMPAS Baby Star in 1924,[4] she had already been in films for a number of years, and in vaudeville before that. She did some of her best work under contract to Cecil B. DeMille, appearing in such productions as Yankee Clipper and Let 'er go Gallagher. She also played in a handful of talkies, (often reduced to minor roles) before disappearing from the big screen in 1934.

Personal life

From 1926 to 1929, she was married to cowboy actor William Boyd.[4] Boyd's proposal was unique—while filming a scene for the DeMille film The Volga Boatman (1926), Boyd's character professes his love for Fair's character. However, what audiences were not aware of (due to The Volga Boatman being a silent film) was that Boyd was actually proposing for real, and that Fair accepted in character and in real life. They did not have any children together.

On December 27, 1932, Fair married aviator Thomas W. Daniels. He obtained an annulment, but they reconciled and remarried. They divorced, however, in 1935.[5] She next married to Jack White in 1941, but this marriage too ended in divorce in 1944.[6]
