Biography

Actress. She was discovered by Charles Chaplin, and made her debut in his "City Lights" (1931) as the blind flower girl. She made a handful of films in the 1930's before retiring. Once married to actor Cary Grant, her last husband (of 46 years) was a Polish World War II flying ace. Her first husband, Irving Adler, was a rich Chicago lawyer (not the famed scientist Irving Adler).[1] They were married in 1925 and divorced in 1928.
