See if you can guess the identity of this famous actress.
Her grandparents were Welsh, Swedish, and Scottish. She was born in Montana and was named after a whistle stop in Nebraska.
[Her] silent film roles were mainly those of vamps or femme fatales, and she frequently portrayed characters of Asian or Eurasian background in films... which she later recalled "...kind of solidified my exotic non-American image." It took years for her to overcome this stereotype, and as late as 1932 she was cast as a villainous Eurasian half-breed... She also played a sadistic Chinese princess in The Mask of Fu Manchu...I leave a final, decisive clue below the fold.
Perhaps if she were carrying Asta...
