She was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas and died in Tryon, North Carolina. She was one eighth Cherokee Indian. She planned to be a concert artiste and it was while she was giving a violin recital that she was seen by Samuel Goldwyn who gave her a chance on stage from where she rose to be one of Broadway's leading ladies. She was married to William A. Brady Jr. (1900–1935), the son of William A. Brady and actress Grace George. They had a daughter, Barbara Brady.

Theatrical productions[edit]
