Constance Adams DeMille


Cecil B. DeMille met his wife Constance when the two were in a 1900 Charles Frohman production of "Hearts are Trumps". Constance had entered the field to the dismay of her staunch New England family.  They married in 1902. In a 1903 touring company of "If I Were King",  the troupe, including the DeMilles, opened Los Angeles' Mason Opera House. Constance retired from acting sometime after the birth of their daughter, Cecilia, in 1910.  Although retired from acting, Mrs. DeMille was active in Hollywood community life as one of the founders of The Studio Club, a residence for young women in the motion picture business with strict rules and supervision.
