Actress. Born in San Francisco, Rambeau worked on the stage from the age of 12. In the first quarter of the 20th century, she became a prominent leading lady on Broadway. She left Broadway for Hollywood in the late 20s, however, and delivered sterling character and support work as blowsy floozies and other hard-luck dames. Rambeau seemed comfortable in rowdy, rambunctious, over the top, woman-of-the-world parts. She was cast in Min and Bill (1930) and the title character in Tugboat Annie Sails Again (1940). Rambeau was twice nominated for the Academy Award for her supporting work in Primrose Path (1940) and Torch Song (1953) but did not take home the Oscar either time. Rambeau's final film was the Lon Chaney biopic Man of a Thousand Faces (1957), in which she delivered am outstanding portrayal of a veteran movie extra. Rambeau was known and respected as a solid professional.
