Marshall's first film appearances were in the 20th Century Fox films Gentleman's Agreement and Daisy Kenyon in 1947 (although they were both uncredited). She went on to play roles (many minor) in over 25 more films until 1967.[2] She had a small but significant role in his I Was a Male War Bride (1949).

Marshall was featured prominently in three Martin and Lewis comedy films, The Stooge, Sailor Beware and That's My Boy, with stars Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

She married three times, her first husband being the cameraman Allen Davey.

In 1963 she married Robert Wagner, with whom she had one child (the television presenter Katie Wagner) before they divorced in 1970.[citation needed]
