June Clyde was born on December 2, 1909, near Maysville, Missouri, as Ina Parton. She was the third child of William Arthur Parton and Orpha Dorothy Day. William and Orpha divorced about 1913, when Orpha took the three girls to live in St. Joseph, Missouri. The girls were nieces of actress Leona Hutton. By 1915, the family moved to Arbuckle, California. Around 1916, Orpha married Harvey Arthur Clyde.
She was a WAMPAS Baby Star of 1932 and she progressed in a career in Hollywood films before marrying film director Thornton Freeland. Clyde moved to England with her husband and appeared in several British films and stage productions starting in 1934, as well as returning to the United States periodically for both stage and film work.
On Broadway, Clyde portrayed Annabel Lewis in Hooray For What! (1937) and Sally Trowbridge in Banjo Eyes (1941). She was part of a production of Annie Get Your Gun that toured in Australia, including a month in Sydney.
