Julanne Johnston (May 1, 1900 - December 26, 1988)[1] was an American silent film actress born in Indianapolis, Indiana.


Johnston is best-known for her female lead in the Douglas Fairbanks film The Thief of Bagdad, with Anna May Wong, in 1924.[2] That same year, she was on William Randolph Hearst's yacht the Oneida during the weekend in November 1924 when film director and producer Thomas Ince later died of heart failure.

Ms. Johnston married David W. Rust (1899-1962) and they lived in Detroit, Michigan. They had two children, Peggy Rust Johnson (1927-2009) and David Wendell Rust (1937-1966). Ms. Johnston lost her 62-year-old husband and her 29-year-old son within the space of six years.

She died in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, at the age of 88. Her remains were buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit.
