Colleen Moore was an actress from the 1910s to the 1930s. Some of her movies include: Ben-Hur (the original 1925 version), Lilac Time, Ella Cinders, The Little American, and The Power and the Glory! One interesting note about her is that she had a torrid affair with director King Vidor in the 1920s when both were married to others, and they maintained contact for 40 years, even after they broke off the affair (because it would ruin their careers, they could not marry!). Also, she was the creator of "The Enchanted Castle", far and away the greatest doll house ever! She designed it, and working with hundreds of craftsmen over the course of a decade, completed it at the cost of some $500,000. Among its many one-of-a-kind features is a library that comes complete with miniature versions of many great works of literature, including a tiny version of "Tarzan of the Apes" signed by Tarzan's creator, Edgar Rice Burroughs. The Enchanted Castle is now on public display at Chicago's Museum of Science & Industry. Moore passed away in 1988 at the age of 88.
