Brown-haired, multi-talented (she played piano and violin) cleanly pretty American actress, briefly busy in starring and co-starring roles in the Hollywood of the late 1930s and early 1940s before retiring to marry. Born Miriam Lilygren, she made her debut in Young Dr Kildare (1938) and had leads in her last two features, The Light of Western Stars and The Man with Nine Lives, both released in 1940. Other films included Fast and Loose (1939), The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1939) and The Women (1939). Some sources believe she can also be spotted in a bit part in 1953's Main Street to Broadway.
