Early life and career
Mabel Croft was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 1, 1887. She entered the film industry in 1917 because her husband was achieving little success with his painting career.
Ballin appeared in 28 films between 1917 and 1925. She achieved popularity during World War I.
She is best known for her role in Riders of the Purple Sage (1925). Her other notable roles included The Glorious Adventure (1918), Jane Eyre (1921), and Vanity Fair (1923), in which she portrayed Becky Sharp.
She married artist-turned-director Hugo Ballin in 1917, and they remained married until his death in 1956.
