Likable, extremely pretty leading lady of mostly B-films, almost exclusively with Universal during a film career which included over two dozen films between 1934 and 1941. Grey is probably best remembered as one of Deanna Durbin's sisters in one of her few A-budget pictures, the delightful comedy "Three Smart Girls" (1936); she later reprised her role in a charming and popular sequel, "Three Smart Girls Grow Up" (1939). Grey also worked for director Joe May on "The Invisible Man Returns" and "The House of the Seven Gables" (both 1940) and contributed a highly touching vignette as the victim of the lesbian vampire countess in "Dracula's Daughter" (1936). She also played the leading role of Kathy Marshall on the popular radio soap opera "Those We Love" from 1938 to 1945. Grey's first husband was jockey Jackie Westrope, and she retired from acting in 1950 upon marrying her second, pop singer Frankie Laine.
