Mini Bio (1)

Pretty, blue-eyed Lucile Browne started out, like many another Hollywood actress, as a model. Unlike other models, however, she didn't go directly from there to films; she joined a theatrical troupe in Chicago, and spent time gaining experience before she headed to Hollywood, where in 1930 she was signed by Fox Film Corp. After parts in a few comedies and romance pictures, she found her niche in westerns and action serials. Her pretty, girl-next-door looks made her a natural to be menaced by sundry villains and rescued by stout-hearted heroes, and she proceeded to do just that for many studios, both major and minor. It was on the set of a 1932 Universal serial that she met actor James Flavin; they soon married and stayed together for more than 40 years, until his death. Lucile basically retired from films in 1938 to raise her family, appearing in only a few films until her death in 1976.
