How Molly Made Good (aka: How Molly Malone Made Good) is a 1915 silent drama film which is one of the first films to feature cameo appearances by major celebrities. It survives in the Library of Congress and is available on DVD.[1][2][3] The writer of the film, Burns Mantle, may have been influenced by the globe-trotting adventure of Nellie Bly in 1889 in which the lady reporter circumvented the globe in a specified amount of time using several means of conveyance and visiting as many famous cities as possible.

The opera star Madame Fjorde is possibly a created character for the film masquerading as a famous opera star. No information on her other than this film is found on the internet.
