About Mary Astor (1906 – 1987)

American leading lady whose real name was Lucille Langehanke, the daughter of first generation German immigrants. Because of a beauty contest she entered, one of many, she was noticed by a movie mogul and she was signed up at a studio at the age of 14. In 1924, her movie career took off, after landing a plum part in Beau Brummell, a film with the star, John Barrymore.

In the late twenties, she was one of the few actresses who transitioned into talkies very smoothly, because of her voice and strong screen presence. Mary Astor's golden era as an actress was during the 1930's. In later years Astor did many character roles. Mary's film career was prolific, with 123 motion pictures to her name.
