Jane Keckley (September 10, 1876 – August 14, 1963)[1] was an American actress of the silent and sound film eras.


Keckley was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and went to school there and in Georgia.[2]

Before she acted in films, Keckley performed in stock theater and in vaudeville.[3]

Keckley began her film career in one- and two-reel Westerns in 1911.[2] Her first feature film was 1915's The Circular Staircase (under the name Jane Watson). In her twenty-five year career, she would appear in over 90 films, as well as dozens of shorts. She would appear as a supporting actress in such films as: William Desmond Taylor's Huck and Tom (1918);[4] the 1936 version of Show Boat, starring Irene Dunne and Allan Jones;[5] and Magnificent Obsession (1935), starring Irene Dunne and Robert Taylor.[6]

She was under contract to Paramount in the late 1930s and early 1940s,[7] where she appeared in her final film, South of Santa Fe (1942), starring Roy Rogers.[8]

Keckley was married to, and divorced from, actor Roy Watson.[9] She died on August 14, 1963.[7][better source needed]
