Back in the days of the studio system, character players with interesting faces were kept under contract to add spice to scenes.

Thanks to perennial TV airings and the advent of home video, generations of children have been exposed to her in what is undoubtedly her best-known part: Dorothy's stern but caring Auntie Em in "The Wizard of Oz" (1939).
