Marian Nixon Hollywood Motion Picture Actress
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
Marian Nixon led an eventful life after she left her native Wisconsin for Minneapolis and then Hollywood. She relished the brisk life of vaudeville, the new towns and settings, the different people she met along the way, etc. However, she realized that she would not become a great dancer. She left the stage and her ballet troupe and made it big as a leading lady in early silent and sound movies.
