Portrait of Janet Gaynor on the cover of
Screen Play April 1933 issue.
          Isa sa pinakasikat na artista ng silent film era ay si Janet Gaynor (1906-1984). Noong 1928, si Gaynor ang unang nagwagi ng Academy Award para sa Best Actress para sa kaniyang pagganap sa mga pelikulang Seventh Heaven (1927), Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927) at Street Angel (1928). Nagpatuloy pa rin ang kaniyang kasikatan nang magkaroon na ng tunog ang mga pelikula, lalo na sa kaniyang pagganap sa pelikulang A Star is Born (1937). Sa katunayan, bibihira ang katulad ni Gaynor na naging matagumpay sa pagbabagong-anyo ng pelikula. Ilang taon din siyang naging pangunahing aktres ng Fox Studio: Sunny Side Up (1929), Delicious (1931), Merely Mary Ann (1931), Adorable (1933), State Fair (1933), at The Farmer Takes a Wife (1935), kung saan unang ipinakilala si Henry Fonda bilang leading man ni Gaynor.
