Marion Aye - Life and Career

Life and Career

Born in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of James H. Aye, she was "discovered" by legendary moviemaker Mack Sennett. She was selected as one of the WAMPAS Baby Stars in 1922. She was a capable dancer, a talent she exhibited in several films. She also appeared in eighteen western shorts opposite Bob Reeves.

Following retirement, she suffered isolation from the film industry, which had virtually forgotten her. In 1935 she attempted suicide. There were several more attempts, ending with her successful suicide attempt in 1951 in Hollywood, California. On July 10, 1951, Aye was found in a "semi-conscious condition" after swallowing poison in a motel room in Culver City, California and died eleven days later. Her father reported that she was despondent after failing to get a part in a television play. Her second husband, comedian Ross Forester, was distraught, stating that he thought his wife was only joking about taking her life.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or life:

    He was at a starting point which makes many a man’s career a fine subject for betting, if there were any gentlemen given to that amusement who could appreciate the complicated probabilities of an arduous purpose, with all the possible thwartings and furtherings of circumstance, all the niceties of inward balance, by which a man swings and makes his point or else is carried headlong.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    Human contacts have been so highly valued in the past only because reading was not a common accomplishment.... The world, you must remember, is only just becoming literate. As reading becomes more and more habitual and widespread, an ever-increasing number of people will discover that books will give them all the pleasures of social life and none of its intolerable tedium.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
