Actress. Born Marie C. Armstrong in Chicago, Illinois, she was the daughter of a wealthy steel magnate who was at one time associated with industrial baron Andrew Carnegie. She appeared in only three full length motion pictures, being best remembered for her role as 'Tamara', in the 1943 film, "Three Russian Girls", a role was supposed to go to Oona O'Neill (the future Mrs. Charlie Chaplin), who bowed out at the last minute. Her other credits include "The Bridge Of San Luis Rey" (1944), and "Sensations Of 1945" (1944). Married to film producer Benedict Bogeaus in 1939, she divorced him in 1945, and married twice more before her untimely death at age 30. On August 17, 1952, after suffering as a manic depressive and from several emotional breakdowns for sometime, she is believed to have taken her own life.
