After a handful of talkies (e.g., "Lilies of the Field" 1930 and the British-made "Lily Christine" 1932), Griffith retired. She tried the stage in the early 30s, then found a second career with real estate and the stock market, becoming one of the wealthiest women in the country. She also wrote several books, one of which, "Papa's Delicate Condition", was made into a film in 1963. In later years, Griffith bizarrely denied that she was the silent film star of that name, claiming to be Corinne Griffith's sister, stand-in and even daughter.
