Born July 13, 1907 in Scandia, Kansas. Granstedt's family moved to Mountain View, CA in 1920. Her birth name was Irene, and she was the second of 4 children. In 1927 she hitchhiked from San Franciso to Los Angeles, changing her name from Eraine, the name she used as an art school model in San Francisco, to Greta, the name she used the rest of her career. Most of her roles were secondary, bit parts. In 1931 she appeared in her first talkie, King Vidor's adaptation of Elmer Rice's Street Scenes. She went on to portray many similar characters, young, attractive and "spunky" through out her career. Perhaps her largest role was in 1958's Return of Dracula, playing the mother of the vampire's victim - and the cousin of the vampire. She died in Los Angeles on October 7, 1987, at the age of eighty. She was married eight times and had one adopted son.
