Jeanie was a dancer and stage performer before going into films, being guided by the great D.W. Griffith. Later in her career, Jeanie was considered the ‘write hand’ on a significant number of Cecil B. DeMille films. With the advent of sound, Jeanie's involvement with DeMille became less and less. When Paramount was about to film "The Unconquered" in 1945, DeMille asked Jeanie for her help on the script but she was unable to assist him as she was dying of terminal cancer.
