Biography

Mona Barrie, 1938

Source: Wikipedia

Mona Barrie, born Mona Smith, was an English born actress in American theatre and motion pictures. Although Barrie was born in London, she was educated in Australia and began her acting career there in live theatre. In 1933 she emigrated to the United States, signing with Fox Film Corporation and making her film debut in 1934 using the stage name Mona Barrie. While her lack of a glamorous beauty resulted in her generally being cast in important but secondary roles, during a film career spanning almost twenty years she appeared in more than fifty motion pictures. Barrie co-starred in the 1942 film Dawn on the Great Divide, the last film Buck Jones made. In addition to her film career, Barrie was a stage actress as well who performed at various playhouses across the U.S. and debuted on Broadway in 1937.
