Thelma Parr (October 19, 1906 – February 13, 2000) was a motion picture actress from Oregon. She is best remembered for her roles in Mack Sennett comedies as one of the Sennett Bathing Beauties. Parr, reportedly a descendant of Thomas Paine, was considered by film critics to be one of the most beautiful brunettes in Hollywood films.
Life and career
She was married to banjo player, William E. Goman, in Santa Ana, California on May 21, 1925. Parr obtained a divorce decree from Goman in April 1930. Parr's film career was ended by a car accident in which she received facial injuries in March 1928. Her mouth was badly mutilated when she was thrown against a windshield of an auto in which she was a passenger. She was also cut on her neck and arms.
Thelma Parr died in San Clemente, California in 2000, aged 93.
