The details


Marjorie Kane (April 28, 1909 – January 8, 1992) was an American film and stage actress born in Chicago. She appeared in 68 films between 1929 and 1951, occasionally under the name Babe Kane.


She appeared on stage for 11 years before she was signed to a 5-year contract with Mack Sennett in 1929. Her contract was validated by Los Angeles superior Judge Keech due to her being under the legal signing age (she was 20 years old at the time).

Her long run in the play Good News garnered her favorable reviews and interested two studios in giving her screen tests in 1928. "When I took my screen tests I was continually conscious of the fact that I was in front of a movie camera and had to act. I was scared to death and couldn't do a thing. I tried my best to be natural but failed terribly."
