Day was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Frank and Irene Newlin, and attended high school in Venice, California, where she was discovered. She was the elder sister of actress Marceline Day.
Day appeared in 70 movies between 1923 and 1932. In 1929, she starred with Edward Buzzell in a film version of the George M. Cohan stage musical Little Johnny Jones, the title better known in revised excerpts staged in the Cohan Biopic Yankee Doodle Dandy. There are no known copies of the Buzzell-Day films.
Day also co-starred with Ted Lewis in the musical Is Everybody Happy? (1929) which is also considered a lost film. Lewis selected her out of approximately 200 candidates for the role. Day appeared in the film Two-Fisted Law (1932) with Tim McCoy and John Wayne.
On July 6, 1930, Day married Jack B. Cohn, a jeweler and broker. She retired from acting soon after the marriage, and the couple had two sons. She and Cohn were divorced on July 28, 1939.
