Neva Gerber
(04/03/1894 - 01/02/1974)

Born Geneveive Dolores Gerber

One of the more prolific serial actresses, Neva Gerber's film credits go back to 1912, when she was making one-reelers for Kalem. Became engaged to William Desmond Taylor in 1915. They never married. Her first serial, as far as is known, was The Great Secret (1917). She alternated between serial work and one-reel comedies for Universal and other studios and appeared in The Voice on the Wire (1917), the first of nine serials she would make with producer/director Ben F. Wilson). She made some first-rate westerns with Harry Carey and a series of very cheap ones with the deservedly obscure Dick Hatton. She then reteamed with Wilson to make westerns, adventures and serials again, winding up her career with The Voice from the Sky (1930).
