Her wikipedia bio seems to run out of steam quite quickly:
safa (July 28, 1908 – March 31, 1968) was an American showgirl and film actress from Cincinnati, Ohio. Her hair was an auburn color
She lasted a bit into the talkie era, and made quite a few pictures in the 30s. Done by '38. And then what? She had 30 more more years to go.
Mehaffey wed oil-well supply dealer George Joseph Hausen at the Jonathan Club in Los Angeles, California in January 1928. They stayed married only ten weeks before the actress obtained a divorce decree..
Perhaps she got a nice retainer out of that role.
