(1911-1937) – It’s hard to imag­ine that the star of nearly two dozen films, in­clud­ing such clas­sics as The Pub­lic En­emy, Plat­inum Blonde and Din­ner at Eight, was only 26 when she died of kid­ney fail­ure af­ter col­laps­ing on the set of Saratoga. Ac­tress Mary Dees stood in for her, back to cam­era, with Paula Winslow pro­vid­ing her voice, in the re­main­ing scenes of the film, which be­came one of the year’s big­gest hits when re­leased less than a month af­ter her death.
