Edna Mae Cooper (July 19, 1900 – June 27, 1986) was an American actress of the silent era. She appeared in 79 films between 1911 and 1927.

Early life

On July 19, 1900, Cooper was born in Baltimore, Maryland.[1]


Cooper is known for her performances in Men, Women, and Money (1919), Grounds for Divorce (1925), and The Ten Commandments (1956).

Bobbi Trout asked starlet Edna Mae Cooper if she wanted to go with her to attempt another endurance run. They first attempted the flight on January 1, 1931 but due to technical problems they had to abort the flight. At their next attempt, they were successful in flying straight for 122 hours and 50 minutes, only to end the run on January 9, 1931 due to the spitting off fuel. This was another record broken by Trout, and was later recognized by King Carol II of Romania, who representative gave her the Royal Decree and the aviation cross for pilots who made record flights, a distinction only given to two other pilots - Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindbergh.[2]


Personal life

Copper's husband was Karl Brown, a cinematopher, screenwriter, and director. On June 27, 1986, Cooper died a month before her 86th birthday in Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, U.S..[4][1]

Cooper is interned at Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Hollywood Hills) in Los Angeles, California.
