Biography

Unlike her friend Clara Bow, dark-haired Margaret Morris got precious little from being voted a 1924 WAMPAS Baby Star. She had begun her professional career with the Shubert Stock Company, entered films in 1920, and eventually found a niche in serials, of which she would do four including The Iron Man (1924), starring Italian strongman Lucien Albertini. There were the usual B-Westerns with the likes of Jack Hoxie, Pete Morrison, and Edmund Cobb and she hung around long enough to play one of Katharine Hepburn's snobbish friends in Alice Adams (1935). Morris reportedly became a noted businesswoman when her screen career ended. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
