Clara Whipple, Silent Film Actress

I received a note this week, asking about information on Clara Whipple, a silent film actress. I found Clara in Wikipedia, where it indicates that Clara is from Missouri and that she appeared in at least six movies in 1916 and 1919. It also cites her marriage to James Young in 1919 and subsequent divorce two years later.

Clara appears in the 1920 U.S. Federal Census of Los Angeles Assembly District 64, Los Angeles, California, where she is listed as Clara W. Young, age 27, born [about 1893] in Missouri of parents who were born in Massachusetts and Alabama. At the time of the census she lived with her husband James at 1127 Orange Street.

I'm looking for more genealogical information on Clara. (I really ought to add her as a disconnected Whipple, but thought I would hold out for a week or so ... or until I find more information about Clara.)

Do you know more about Clara? Feel free to share!
