Margaret Livingston
Birth: Nov. 25, 1895
Salt Lake City
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA
Death: Dec. 13, 1984
Bucks County
Pennsylvania, USA

Actress. One of the screen's wickedest and most alluring vamps. In director F. W. Murnau's Oscar-winning classic "Sunrise" (1927), Livingston is unforgettable as the raven-haired "Woman of the City" who seduces a young farmer into a scheme to murder his wife. She slinked her way through 79 films, including such titles as "Alimony" (1917), "What's Your Husband Doing?" (1920), "Lying Lips" (1922), "Divorce" (1923), "Married Alive" (1927), "The Office Scandal" (1929), "Big Money" (1930), "Kiki" (1931), and "Call Her Savage" (1932). The Salt Lake City native began acting with her sister Ivy in local stock companies, occasionally billed as Marguerite Livingston or Margaret Livingstone. In films from 1916, she combined a stylish, haughty look with an uninhibited manner and was quickly typed into villainous roles. Her husky voice was a plus when talkies arrived, but she rapidly gained weight and retired from show business in 1934. She was married to bandleader Paul Whiteman from 1931 until his death in 1967. Fans of movie trivia also remember Livingston for a role that was supposed to have gone unnoticed: in "The Canary Murder Case" (1929), she dubbed the voice of Louise Brooks and doubled for her in a few scenes when Brooks refused to reshoot the film (which was originally silent) as a talkie. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
