Betty Compson filmography

This page has most if not all of Betty Compson's known film appearances 1915–48. Films from 1915 to 1919 are shorts, mostly for Al Christie unless otherwise stated. A big breakout came in 1919 with The Miracle Man now lost. In the early-to-mid 1920s Compson was a major player at Paramount with her name above the title of her films. By the end of the decade she was free-lancing and appearing as feature and support with name below the title of the film. Her star definitely took a fall somewhere after marrying director James Cruze, and she would remain a feature support into the sound era for the rest of her film career.
