1886 - 1975

The actress Margarita Fisher was already active as an actress as a child and she impersonated among others the role of Adrienne in the play "The Celebrated Case".

She achieved huge popularity in the next years and finally her father formed the Margarita Fischer Stock Company which toured several years at the pacific coast. 

Her acting talent was also noticed by the new medium film and she already made her film debut in 1910 with "There, Little Girl, Don't Cry" (10), "Romeo and Juliet in Our Town" (10), "The Kentucky Pioneer" (10), "The Vampire" (10) and "The Squaw and the Man" (10).

During this time Margarita Fischer changed her name into Fisher because of the anti German atmosphere during World War I.
