Mae Clarke was a beautiful actress. Talented, but beautiful. I read reviews of her works and it's always the same. a nice face but not one you remember. Wrong. In "WATERLOO BRIDGE" she is just the woman a man could love, a warm smile, tough yet vulnerable and very beautiful. So let's have no more of that nonsense.
mae clarke: tough dame
- robert beatty
mae clarke was one of the great leading ladies of the early 1930's with splended performances in "the front page", "frankenstein", "the public enemy", "waterloo bridge", "the good bad girl", "penguin pool murder", "night world", "penthouse" and "lady killer". she was a good actress who never made the front ranks and was reduced to supporting roles later on. clarke was a pretty actress with a tough persona. she made a great gangster moll in movies. like margaret lindsay and ann dvorak, mae clarke was underrated but certainly one of the more natural actresses of the 30's.

I just watched "Waterloo Bridge" from the Forbidden Hollywood collection. I lost count of how many times I thought "wow" at Mae Clarke's performance. I had to backup and replay the scenes where her character's careening emotions played across her face. Needless to say, I'll now be looking for anything she's been in. If TCM hasn't done a series of films featuring her, they oughtta.
Good Actress, Cute Face
- Dennis Hyer
Her presence doesn't command your attention on screen, and she isn't a blazing ball of fire like Barbara Stanwyck, but Mae Clarke was an attractive and talented actress who did her job very well. She needs to be remembered for more than just a grapefruit in the face -- and as more people are able to see Mae's outstanding performance in the original "Waterloo Bridge", her talents are becoming evident to a growing number of movie fans.
