Louise Campbell McMahon
Birth: Jun. 30, 1911
Cook County
Illinois, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 1997
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Actress. Born Louise Weisbecker in Chicago, Illinois, she studied dramatic arts at De Paul University and attended the Chicago School of Expression. Campbell supported herself working as a dental assistant, while performing in several stage stock companies. She then made the decision to relocate to Hollywood in 1937. She was quickly contracted by Paramount Pictures and made her screen debut in, "Wild Money" with Edward Everett Horton. Several films followed, "Bulldog Drummond Comes Back" (1937) with John Barrymore (followed by two sequels), "The Buccaneer" (1938) with Fredric March, and "The Star Maker" (1939) with Bing Crosby. Despite her success in Hollywood, Campbell always made it clear she preferred the stage, returning when time allowed. In 1942, she appeared in a revival of "Three Men On A Horse" which opened at the Forrest Theatre, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was there she met the man that would become her husband, Horace McMahon. Their marriage would last until his death in 1971. Campbell continued in Hollywood, with her last film role in, "Devil Ship" (1947). She retired from film, but continued her love of the stage into the early 1980s. (bio by: katzizkidz)
