Enter Your Contribution Here Mae Busch was born on 18th June 1891 in Melbourne, Australia. Her first film was OVER THE RIVER with Eddie Foy in 1915. She rose to prominence in Erich Von Stroheims FOOLISH WIVES (1921). After arguments with studio bosses over pay and a nervous breakdown, Mae's career sadly took a dive. Throughout the 30's she made several Laurel and Hardy films as well as parts in CHEATING BLONDES (1933), STRANDED (1935), DAUGHTER OF SHANGHAI (1938), WOMEN WITHOUT NAMES (1940) and ZIEGFELD GIRL (1941). Her final film was LADIES MAN released in 1947. Mae died at 2.20am of the morning of 19th April 1946 at the MOTION PICTURE COUNTRY HOME AND HOSPITAL of Cancer.
