Fania Marinoff
(March 20, 1890 – November 17, 1971)

"...was a Russian-born American actress. She played supporting and lead roles in dozens of Broadway plays between 1903 and 1937, and eight U.S. silent movies between 1914 and 1917."

Fania Marinoff spent much of her life in the shadow of her husband, Carl Van Vechten. Though she had an extraordinary sense of drama and a great deal of flair, she was sometimes eclipsed by Van Vechten’s larger-than-life personality, so that even during her lifetime Marinoff was known to many mainly as “Carlo’s wife.” In spite of this, Marinoff was a woman of achievement in her own right."
