Loretta Blake (1898-1981) was an American film actress.

Loretta Blake was born on April 17, 1898 at Akron, Ohio. She attended Saint Mary's Convent in Akron for five years before moving to Los Angeles to live with her grandparents where she finished her education.

She joined the famous D. W. Griffith organization without previous experience. Several of her girlfriends were in picture work and she had dropped around to the studio with one of them one day out of curiosity. She cheerfully accepted an offer to do a small role for pin money and when the director saw her appearance she was hired immediately. She was dainty at five feet two inches and 115 pounds.[1] She married actor, director, and agent Nat G. Deverich. They had one child, Albert Douglas Deverich. She died on July 30,1981 at Los Angeles, California, USA. Her resting place is San Fernando Mission Cemetery, Mission Hills CA, Section D, Lot 302, Grave 3.

Known for Branch Number Thirty-Seven (1915), The Broken Lullaby (1915) and 100% American (1918).
