Family & Companions
Sensitive, lovely heroine of many D.W. Griffith films. The gifted Marsh joined the director's company in 1912 and distinguished herself as the younger sister who plunges to her death in "The Birth of a Nation" (1915) and especially as the young wife in the modern episode of "Intolerance" (1916). After a brief retirement in the mid-1920s she played supporting parts in sound films, especially those of John Ford. Sister of actress Marguerite Marsh.
