Biography

Stock-company actress Maria Elliot was transformed into Judith Allen when signed to a Paramount contract in 1933. Her brief Paramount stay was rather unexceptional, except for her leading-lady assignment in DeMille's This Day and Age (1933) and her gently satirical portrayal of the daughter of two-bit impresario W. C. Fields in The Old Fashioned Way (1934). Her bid for stardom forgotten by the mid-1930s, Judith nonetheless remained in films into the 1950s. Judith Allen's leading-lady duties opposite Gene Autry in such late-1930s westerns as Boots and Saddles assured her work in low-budget sagebrushers until the day she retired. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
