Virginia Davis, who appeared in Walt Disney's pioneering silent films, has died at age 90.
Disney Studios spokesman Howard Green says Davis passed away at her home Saturday in Corona, Calif., from natural causes.
The pretty blond 4-year-old was hired by Disney in 1923 when he was just starting out in Kansas City, Mo. She later worked with him in Hollywood.
