Personal Quote:

[on her "Svengali" co-star John Barrymore] He was really rather shy. Sometimes, after he would play a scene, everybody would applaud, and he would back into the wall!

Changed her name from Violet Krauth to Marilyn Morgan at age 15 in 1928 before ultimately adopting the professional name of Marian Marsh. See more »
