Minor 30s leading lady known for her long blonde tresses who came to Hollywood after winning a beauty and talent contest sponsored by Universal.

She made her film debut in Saturday's Millions (1933), a Universal football saga starring Robert Young, followed by Horse Play (1933), a slapstick comedy starring Slim Summerville.

Personal Quotes (1)

[on cowboy actor Reb Russell and the two westerns she made with him, Range Warfare (1934) and Fighting Through (1934)] They were terrible movies--the worst of the worst. Reb was a very nice man--he must have been divorced by this time, as we dated a few times. He was a perfect gentleman, who always wore expensive cowboy boots, even on our dates! Reb was not an actor--he couldn't act his way out of a paper bag--but he was so congenial, friendly, nice. Portly, but a nice looking man.
