Mini-Biography:
Clara Kimball Young was born on September 6, 1890 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. She was an American Actress, known for The Woman of Bronze (1923), The Hindoo Charm (1913), Some Steamer Scooping (1914), Clara Kimball Young's first movie on record is from 1909. Clara Kimball Young died on October 15, 1960 in Woodland Hills, California, USA. Her last motion picture on file dates from 1934.
Biographical Notes in German: Schauspielerin des amerikanischen Stummfilms, trat bereits im Alter von drei Jahren in Theater auf, Ihre Eltern waren die Schauspieler Edward M. Kimball und Pauline Maddern (Mrs. E.E. Kimball). Schon jung heiratete sie den Schauspielerkollegen James Young, ihre ersten Engagements im Film hatte sie um 1909. Bei der Vitaphone gewann sie nach 1912 rasch an Popularität, vor allem auch durch die Hauptrolle in "His official Wife", in welchem ihr Mann Regie führte.

Mit ihrer eigenen Filmproduktion, der Clara Kimball Young Film Corporation, unter dem Management von Lewis J. Selznick war sie einer der führenden Stars des amerikanischen Films, der sich leisten konnte, selbst zu bestimmen, welche Filme sie drehen wollte und wer ihr Regisseur sein sollte. Motion Picture World nannte sie "one of the most gifted actresses now appearing in Motion Pictures". Ihre ambitionierten Produktionen wie "Camille" oder "The Feast of Life" (beide Regie Albert Capellani) waren erfolgreich, aber die geschäftlichen Differenzen mit Selznick, der beschäftigt war, sein eigenes Imperium aufzubauen, und die Scheidungsaffäre mit ihrem Mann, schadeten rasch Kimballs Karriere. Nach der 1919 erfolgten Scheidung von Young brachte ihr auch die neue geschäftliche Partnerschaft mit Harry Garson nicht mehr den gewünschten Erfolg und 1925 drehte sie ihren letzten Stummfilm "Lying Wives" (Regie: Ivan Abramson).

In den folgenden Jahren trat sie vor allem im Vaudeville auf, und in den Dreissiger Jahren kehrte Clara Kimball Young für einige Zeit auf die Leinwand zurück, allerdings in Nebenrollen von recht unbedeutenden Filme. 1941 nahm sie endgültig Abschied vom Kino.

In den späteren Jahren ihres Lebens erklärte sie, sie wäre die erste Schauspielerin gewesen, die ihre eigene Produktionsfirma hatte ("I was the first star to finance her own production outfit"), und die erste Kino-Schauspielerin, deren Namen in grossen Lettern am Broadway zu lesen waren. Die erste Aussage trifft bestimmt nicht zu: vor ihr hatten schon Helen Gardner, Gene Gautier oder Marion Leonard ihre eigenen Produktionsfirmen. Und was ihre zweite Behauptung betrifft, so dürfte man dies mindestens in Frage stellen.

Sie war Mitte der Zehner Jahre unbestritten einer der grossen Star des amerikanischen Films, und - was vielleicht noch wichtiger war - mit ihren Filmen half sie, das Monopol der Verleihfirmen zu brechen, welche die Kinos damals mit dem System der Blockbuchungen diktierten. Clara Kimball Young starb an den Folgen einer Herzattacke im einem Heim für Schauspieler in Woodland Hills am 15. Oktober 1960. (lhg 2011)
