Violet Ethelred Krauth was born on 17 October, 1913 in Trinidad, British West Indies (now Trinidad and Tobago), the youngest of four children of a German chocolate manufacturer and his French/English wife. With World War I, Violet's father moved the family to Boston, Massachusetts. By the time Violet was ten, the family had relocated to California where Violet's older sister, an actress who went by the name of Jean Fenwick, eventually landed a job as a contract player with FBO Studios. Violet attended La Conte Junior High School and Hollywood High School. One day in 1928, Violet was approached by silent screen actress, Nance O'Neil, who offered Violet speech and movement lessons. With Jean's help, Violet soon entered the movies. Violet, now known as Marilyn Morgan, secured a contract with Pathé where she was featured in many short subjects under the name Marilyn Morgan. Soon she was seen in a small role in Howard Hughes' classic "Hell's Angels", as well as a role in Eddie Cantor's lavish, Technicolor musical "Whoopee". Not long after, she was signed by Warner Bros. and changed her name to Marian Marsh.
