Was an avid golfer who was still teeing off well into her 80s.

When Ms. Banky became ill in late 80s, she was upset with the lack of attention from the media and the public. So there was no offical mention of her death until late 1992.

Her wedding to actor Rod La Rocque was paid for by producer Samuel Goldwyn and was considered one of the most extravagent of all Hollywood parties at the time.

Banky spoke no English when first discovered by Samuel Goldwyn, who taught her to answer "Lamp chops and pineapple" to all reporters` questions.

Rudolph Valentino personally picked Vilma Banky as his leading lady in what would be his final film "The Son Of The Sheik".

Vilma`s first talking picture, "This Is Heaven," proved an awful experience for the almost inaudible Hungarian actress. Therefore, her illustrious silent film career did not survive the change to talkies. She made her very last film only four years later, in 1933.
