Marie Prevost was a Canadian-born actress who gained popularity during the silent film era in Hollywood. She was born on November 8, 1896, in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, and began her career in entertainment as a chorus girl in New York City before transitioning to acting in silent films. Prevost appeared in numerous films throughout the 1920s, often portraying roles in comedies and dramas. Some of her notable films include "The Marriage Circle" (1924), directed by Ernst Lubitsch, and "The Racket" (1928), directed by Lewis Milestone. She was known for her charm and versatility on screen. However, with the transition to sound films in the late 1920s, Prevost's career began to decline. Despite efforts to adapt to the new medium, she faced personal and professional challenges, including financial struggles and difficulties in securing roles that matched her previous success. Tragically, Marie Prevost's life ended at the age of 40. She passed away on January 21, 1937, in Hollywood, California. Her death was attributed to a combination of factors, including alcoholism and malnutrition.
