Geraldine Farrar (February 28, 1882 – March 11, 1967) was a soprano opera singer and film actress.

 

She recorded extensively for the Victor Talking Machine Company and was often featured prominently in that firm's advertisements. She also appeared in silent movies, which were filmed between opera seasons.

 

Farrar starred in more than a dozen films from 1915 to 1920, including Cecil B. De Mille's 1915 adaptation of Georges Bizet's opera Carmen.

 

Here's a clip of her singing with Enrico Caruso in 1912:
