Actress
    (December 12, 1909-March 8, 2003)
    Born in Ottumwa, Iowa
    Birth name was Mildred Linton
    Appeared in the films 'Mata Hari' (1931), 'Scarface' (1932), 'The Mask of Fu Manchu' (1932), 'Dinner at Eight' (1933), 'Arsene Lupin' (1933), 'Our Daily Bread' (1934), 'Black Fury' (1935), 'The Littlest Rebel' (1936), 'Pride and Prejudice' (1940), 'Framed' (1947) and 'M' (1951)

    She majored in pre-med at UCLA for a year before dropping out and joining the Pasadena Playhouse.
    She said, 'I was what you'd call a 'pillow red.' I became a communist because I fell in love with a man [actor Lloyd Gough] who was a red and had joined the army to take care of the fascists, and I knew it would please him if I became one.'
    She ran unsuccessfully for Lieutenant Governor of New York on the America Labor Party ticket (1954).
    Director Clarence Brown hired her to read lines with actors auditioning to star opposite Greta Garbo, then decided she was good enough that he got her a contract with MGM.
    She was blacklisted after appearing before the House Un-American Activities Committee and taking the fifth.
    Late in her life, she was frequently interviewed for documentaries about the stars she acted with, such as Garbo and John Barrymore.
