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!

Trivia:

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 »
