This chapter covers Ann Dvorak’s childhood through the age of eleven. Items discussed include Dvorak’s early exposure to entertainment by accompanying her parents to a film shoot in Cuba, traveling with her mother on a vaudeville circuit tour, and appearing in three motion pictures as a child actress, including the 1916 epic Ramona. Also discussed are the film careers of McKim and Lehr, the dissolution of their marriage and ultimate divorce, and Ann’s separation from both her parents when she is left with relatives in New York so they can concentrate on their film work.
