Born in Boston, Veda Ann Borg was a New York model in 1936 when a screentest brought her a short-lived contract at Paramount, where she madeher debut film, Three Cheers for Love (1936) . She fit better atWarner Brothers, where she played at least 15 roles (some of them bits)in 1937-38; but in 1939 a severe auto crash, requiring full facialreconstruction by plastic surgery, interrupted her career. Stillattractive, she freelanced through the 1940s, often at "poverty row"studios like Monogram. In many of her films (both before and after theaccident) she played a brassy, man-hungry, lower-class sexpot.

Despiteconsiderable talent, she received leading roles only in a few B filmslike What a Blonde (1945) . Veda could make the smallest bit partmemorable, though, with one line or a bit of business. Who could forgetthe sassy once-over she gives 'Wayne Morris (I)' in Kid Galahad (1937) or her "modderen singer of modderen songs" in The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947) . Her later roles weremore varied, from a zombie to Blind Nell (a memorable last role) in The Alamo (1960) . Veda's second marriage (1946-1958), todirector 'Andrew V.

McLaglen' , produced three children: MaryMcLaglen, Josh McLaglen, and Andrew Victor McLaglen II. She died ofcancer in Hollywood at age 58 after at least 100 film roles. .
