Was born at 9 October 1908 in Kansas City, Missouri, USA . Died at 9 May 1983, Escondido, California, USA

Marjorie Beebe grew up in Missouri before coming to California as ateenager with her mother. By 1924 she had been hired by Universal butit was only when she joined Fox that her career took off. Her talentfor comedy became apparent. She played support in a number of Foxfeatures before being given the title role in "The Farmer's Daughter"(1928).

She got excellent reviews for her performance and was hailed asthe best comedienne to emerge for many years. Mack Sennett, The King of Comedy, was also impressed and within a yearshe had joined him. Marjorie Beebe's career changed in two ways. Instead of appearing in feature length movies she now starred inSennett's two reel shorts. Instead of silent movies henceforth sheappeared in talkies.

She appeared in around forty shorts for Sennettmany of which he had specially written for her. The titles were oftennamed for her and she played a character called Marge. One of them"Cowcatcher's Daughter" (1931) was clearly a nod to her earlier Foxtriumph. She was also leased out to other studios including Paramountand Vitaphone. Sennett declared that Beebe had the potential to be thegreatest comedienne the screen had ever seen.

Sennett went bust in 1933 and Marjorie Beebe's career never recovered. She reverted to features and to support roles where her comic talentswere frankly wasted. In 1940 she retired permanently from the moviebusiness. She dabbled in property and lived in reasonable contentmentwith her last husband there had been brief marriages in the 1930s)AndyAndersen. .
