Lucille LaVerne
Birth: Nov. 7, 1869
Nashville
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Mar. 4, 1945
Culver City
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actress. Born Lucille Mitchum in Nashville, Tennessee in 1869 (or possibly 1872), she began acting on stage as a child. She made her New York stage debut in 1888 while still a teen and seven years later had her own theatrical company which toured the United States and Europe performing before the crowned heads of Europe. She made her film debut in "Over Night" (1915). Her film credits included: "Orphans of the Storm" (1921); and "The Last Moment" (1928). She excelled at witches, old hags and other bedraggled types. With a small build, long-hair, very intense eyes, and a husky voice, she was a consummate professional, sacrificing her looks for her craft. She has been variously billed as Lucille La Varney, Lucille La Varnie, Lucile LaVerne, Lucille LaVerne, Lucille Lavarney, Lucille Laverne or Lucille Q. Scott. Her ‘talkie’ debut was "Little Caesar" (1930) with Edward G. Robinson. Her appearances also included: "Abraham Lincoln" (1930); "Sinner's Holiday" (1930); "24 Hours" (1931); "An American Tragedy" (1931); "While Paris Sleeps" (1932) and "A Tale of Two Cities" (1935). Her most famous role, however, was probably that of the evil Queen in Disney’s first full length feature animation “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves”. It was also her last role. She retired from the industry and opened a night club. She died in Culver City, California at age 75. (bio by: Iola)
