Marion Aye
Birth: Apr. 5, 1903
Cook County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jul. 21, 1951
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actress. A noted beauty of the early 1920s, she had a brief career in silent films. Raised in Chicago, she was signed by producer Mack Sennett who had an eye for girls that looked good in swimsuits and made her silver screen bow in the 1919 short "Hearts and Flowers". Marion went on to roles in a number of western short films, was named a WAMPAS Baby Star for 1922, and had parts in several features, her assignments often utilizing her dancing ability. Seen in "The Eternal Three" and "The Week-End Party" (both 1923) and 1924's "The Last Man on Earth", she earned her final credit in the 1926 "Irene" then dropped from view. Marion apparently suffered psychiatric problems after leaving show business and had her first suicide attempt in 1935. Openly stating her intention to kill herself, she made a number of gestures, which may have coincided with unsuccessful tries at a screen comeback, leading up to her death 11 days after taking poison in a Culver City hotel room. She was sometimes billed as "Maryon Aye"; a few of her performances have been preserved. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
