Netflix Movies Starring Irene Hervey

Attractive, blond, dimple-cheeked artist's daughter, Irene Hervey was trained at the MGM School of Acting before being signed as a contract player in 1933. Often on loan to other studios, she was assigned bit parts until meatier co-starring roles came along in The Girl Said No (1937) and Say It in French (1938). While at MGM, Irene was briefly engaged to Robert Taylor, an affair which was stymied by Louis B. Mayer, who saw it as detrimental to Taylor's career. After briefly free-lancing, Irene signed with Universal (joining her then-husband, actor/singer Allan Jones) in 1938 and remained with that studio until 1943. Her best-known film was the classic James Stewart-Marlene Dietrich western Destry Rides Again (1939) in 1939. In the 1940's, Irene became a leading lady of B-movies. In the crime melodramas San Francisco Docks (1940) and Frisco Lil (1942), she was, respectively, a barmaid and a law student, trying to clear her nearest and dearest of murders they hadn't committed.
