#Quote
1[as to why Fox Films dropped her contract] Here they had tried to change me to a more sophisticated type in appearance and otherwise by cutting and dyeing my hair. I thought they took me away from my natural appearance and comedy flair. Isn't that the way it goes? Sign you for what you have to offer, mess around and ruin it all, then give up and toss you out.
#Fact
1Good-looking, blond-haired actress, typically in roles conveying severe brainpower deprivation, in US films from 1925 through the early 50's.
2A beauty contest winner, she appeared in films from 1925. Apart from a three-months spell of married bliss in 1956, she lived with her parents. She eventually quit acting to become a part-time nurse.
3Specialised in playing dizzy blondes, usually night club singers, waitresses or chorines.
4She was briefly engaged to Joel McCrea in the late 1920s.
5Her parents saw her movie star potential and moved the family from Oklahoma to Hollywood.
6She was a WAMPAS Baby Star of 1926, along with Mary Astor, Mary Brian, Dolores Costello, Joan Crawford, Marceline Day, Dolores del Rio, Janet Gaynor and Fay Wray, amongst others.
7Was a good, off-the-set friend of actress Clara Bow.
8Worked in two-reel comedies for Mack Sennett and later played dumb blonde foils for such comics as Bobby Clark, Paul McCullough and Charley Chase.
9She had to use her own gowns, furs and jewels in many of the low budget movies she appeared in.
