"The Woman in White" (1917) starring Florence La Badie

"The Woman in White" is a drama, featuring Florence La Badie, a star of Silent Hall of Fame. 

Florence La Badie died just three months after the film's release as a result of injuries sustained in an auto accident.  She was 29. She was the leading actress of Thanhouser from 1911 until her untimely death in 1917.
