Personal Quote:

I was a "natural", and because of it I am remembered.


She and her two sisters all went into show business. Sister Isabelle retired young. Molly and her other successful actress sister, Virginia (renamed 'Sally O'Neil Keenan') both became "Wampas Baby Stars" -- Sally in 1926 and Molly in 1928. They appeared together in two films: The Lovelorn (1927) and Sisters (1930). See more »
