Trivia (2)

Dark-haired silent screen comedienne. A favourite leading lady of Buster Keaton, she appeared in several of his early two-reel comedies. Retired from films in 1922, after marrying the writer Jules Furthman. Lived in Culver City towards the end of her life.
From 1919 to 1922 Seely was under contract to comedy producer Mack Sennett, starting out in Sennett's "Bathing Beauty" series. Her five films with Buster Keaton - the defining moments of her career - were all done as loan-outs from Sennett and prevented her from working more extensively with Keaton. At the end of 1922 Seely retired from show business to raise a family.
