Leatrice Joy, from 1922. Wikipedia:

Directors often cast Joy in the "strong-willed independent woman" role, and the liberated atmosphere of the Jazz Age Roaring Twenties solidified her public popularity, especially with female film goers. Her close-cropped hair and somewhat boyish persona (she was often cast as a woman mistaken for a young man) became fashionable during the era.

Her heavy Suthun accent nixed her talkie career; wasn't fashionable. She retired in the early 30s and lived another fifty years until she died in 1985 at the age of 91.
