The versatile leading lady was memorable in Edison, the Man (1940), she played a murderer in Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941) and a doomed wife in the RKO film noir TheyWon’t Believe Me 1947).  On September 6, 1948 her career came to a screeching halt when a hair dryer fell on her head, resulting in irreparable brain damage.  A number of extensive surgeries were performed, but, thereafter, her screen time was quite limited.  She died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1965, aged only 52 years.
