Mae Busch
Original name: Annie May Busch
Birth: Jun. 18, 1891
Victoria, Australia
Death: Apr. 19, 1946
San Fernando
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actress. Born Annie May Busch, she was the daughter of an opera singer mother and a symphony conductor father. Bush made her film debut in the short, "The Agitator" (1912) with J. Warren. In her early film career she was considered extraordinarily attractive and she was a favorite of several classic directors in the early days of motion pictures. Her best opportunities in the 1930s came in the films of Laurel and Hardy, where she was often cast as a shrewish wife or sharp-tongued "lady of the evening." Bush died in San Fernando, California, after a brief bout with cancer. She was cremated and her ashes remained in a cardboard box at the Motion Picture Country Home Hospital until they were discovered years later. She is interred under the name Mae Busch Tate. (bio by: MC)
