Mae Madison was born September 17, 1915 as Mariska Megyzsi (or Medgyesi) to Hungarian parents in Los Angeles, CA. She began her entertainment career as a child dancer before making the transition into early silent films. Her film debut was The Play Girl in 1928 directed by Arthur Rosson. Other notable films include The Mad Genius in 1931 opposite co-star John Barrymore and The Big Stampede in 1932 with John Wayne. A Warner Brothers contract player, Madison would star in some 20 films for the studio, many of which were under the direction of the famous Busby Berkeley, who showcased her talents and figure in such films as Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), and Redheads on Parade (1935). A star of "pre-code" Hollywood, her last appearance was as an interviewee in the 2003 documentary entitled Complicated Women, which focuses on the nature of women in films prior to the Hays censorship codes. Mae Madison died at the age of 90 on November 1, 2004 in Los Angeles, CA.
