Actress. A striking blonde beauty, she played leading ladies in silent films and then supporting roles in talkies, often as a vamp. Dunn is memorable in D. W. Griffith's "The Sorrows of Satan" (1926) and as Ginger in "Our Modern Maidens" (1929). Her other credits include W. C. Fields' "It's the Old Army Game" (1926), "The Singing Fool" (1928), "A Most Immoral Lady" (1929), "Madonna of the Streets" (1930), "Fast Life" (1932), and "Birth of a Baby" (1938). Mary Josephine Dunn was born in New York City. She began her career at 15 as a Broadway chorus girl, and a Paramount talent scout brought her to Hollywood in 1926. Dunn retired in 1938. Her last of four husbands was producer Carroll Case. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
