Marion Cecelia Douras

Marion Davies was born in Brooklyn, New York, and followed her sisters into show business. By the age of twenty she had appeared as a chorus girl in a number of Broadway shows including the famed “Ziegfeld Follies”. Throughout the rest of her twenties she starred in over two dozen films which were heavily promoted by her lover, newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst. With regard to jazz standards, Davies and Cliff Edwards introduced “Just You, Just Me” in the 1929 MGM film Marianne. Her career began to falter in the mid-1930s, coincident with Hearst’s financial troubles, and in 1937, at the age of forty she made her final film.
