Biography

Source: Wikipedia

Helen Mack is one of the earliest examples of pioneering women who were successful in the entertainment industry, first as a performer and then orchestrating behind the scenes. After starting her career as a child actress in silent films, Mack moved on to performing in Broadway plays and touring the vaudeville circuit. She returned to acting as an adult, achieving great success as a leading lady of the 1930s. Eventually Mack transitioned into performing on radio, and then into working as writer, director, and producer of some of the best known shows of radio's Golden Age. Later in life, Mack billed herself as a professional writer, writing for Broadway, stage, and television. Her career spanned the infancy of the motion picture industry, the beginnings of Broadway, the final days of Vaudeville, the transition to "talking pictures", the Golden Age of Radio, and the rise of television.
