Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Attractive comic and light dramatic performer--and former Ziegfeld girl--who made her screen debut in England in 1920. Throughout the decade, and into the 1930s, Mackaill appeared in numerous Hollywood entertainments, as lead or supporting lead. Mackaill gave excellent starring performances in such early talkies as "The Office Wife" (1930) and the uniquely grim and memorable melodrama, "Safe in Hell" (1931). She also contributed fine work as the other woman, opposite the up-and-coming Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, in "No Man of Her Own" (1932).
