  • Wow - Mae Clarke is a surprise

    Saw Waterloo Bridge last night. At first I thought Mae was a very young Norma Shearer. Depending on the shot, I was almost convinced of this. (I missed the credits). I thought how wonderful that Bette Davis and Shearer were together in the same movie. Never saw that before. But I realized that this was my introduction to Mae Clarke! I will have to revisit her other movies.... Of course, the Davis went onto great fame. Fascinating.

    I can't even recall which movie I seen first of Mae Clarke's, but by now I have almost seen them all! She caught my attention quickly by her acting ability alone. Of course, I think she's beautiful, but she is a well-rounded actress. Waterloo Bridge too, is one of my favorites of hers, but her performance in The Front Page was fantastic. I could feel the desperation in her voice to be very real when she is speaking about the innocent man they are going to hang. (Well it is really the only major speaking part of hers in that movie). I was really bummed that she did not continue to have a very successful career past the 30's. I could never understand why someone with her talent would not be hugely successful in the movie biz for years to come. I did read somewhere that she was in a pretty bad car accident in the late 30's that left one side of her face very disfigured. AND you know how Hollywood is about that...(career over)..That is really unfortunate. Lately, in addition to finding as many of Mae's movies as I can find, I have been getting on Ebay and purchasing original photo's of hers. Surprisingly there is alot. Some original and some not. Alot of movie scene photos too. I can say with complete certainty, that to me, they don't make them like Mae Clarke anymore!

    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

    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

    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.
