Marion Davies

marion-davies-3Marion Davies, seen here in 1930, was primarily a comic actress but, when her lover, William Randolph Hearst, took over the management of her career, he pressured her into more serious roles, for which she was unsuited. Her career suffered and she retired from acting in 1937.
