She starred alongside John Loder in the 1935 romantic comedy It Happened in Paris, which marked Carol Reed's debut as director. In 1937 she had a supporting role in the independent film Thunder in the City, an expensive drama starring Edward G. Robinson which was a major financial and critical failure. Her final screen appearance was in the 1939 horseracing film Flying Fifty-Five.
