Marie Glory (March 3, 1905 – January 24, 2009[1]), was a French actress.

She was born Raymonde Louise Marcelle Toully in Mortagne-au-Perche, Orne, Normandy. She made her film debut in 1924 with a small role in Raymond Bernard's historical epic Le Miracle des Loups under the stage name Arlette Genny, which she used until 1927.

From then on, she was credited under the name "Marie Glory". In the three hours plus French-German co-production L'Argent (1928), directed by Marcel L'Herbier, she played the lead female role alongside Brigitte Helm and Pierre Alcover. She starred with Jean Angelo, Lil Dagover and Gaston Modot in another French-German co-production, Henri Fescourt's The Count of Monte Cristo. She made her German film debut in 1929 in Vater und Sohn, directed by Géza von Bolváry.

Her first talking picture was Leo Mittler's Le Roi de Paris (1930), co-starring with the exiled Serbian actor Ivan Petrovich. In the 1930s, she played predominantly leading roles in such films as Les Deux mondes, directed by Ewald André Dupont, and Madame ne veut pas d'enfants, directed by Hans Steinhoff. In 1939, she had her last leading role. She made only one film in the 1940s, Dagli Appennini alle Ande (1943). In the early 1950s, she was cast in Italian film productions playing minor roles. Her last film appearance was in 1960; her last television appearance was in 1964.

In the mid-1990s,[2] she was interviewed for Kevin Brownlow's documentary about the history of silent film: Cinema Europe: The Other Hollywood. Glory died on 24 January 2009, less than two months shy of her 104th birthday.
