Mae Clarke (in Lady Killer, 1933)


American screen actress, widely known for playing Henry Frankenstein's bride Elizabeth Lavenza, who is chased by Boris Karloff in Frankenstein, and for being on the receiving end of James Cagney's halved grapefuit in The Public Enemy. Both films were released in 1931.

Mae Clarke started her professional career as a dancer in New York City, sharing a room with Barbara Stanwyck. She subsequently starred in many films for Universal Studios.

Clarke appeared as Myra Deauville in the 1931 pre-Code version of Waterloo Bridge. In the film she portrays a young American woman who is forced by circumstance into a life of prostitution in World War I London.

By the mid-1930s, Clarke was no longer a leading lady. In 1933, Clarke and actor Phillips Holmes were in a single-car accident that left her with a broken jaw and facial scarring.

On television, Clarke appeared in many episodic series, including General Hospital, Perry Mason and Batman. Clarke retired in 1970 and taught drama.

Clarke was married and divorced three times; all the unions were childless. She died from cancer on 29 April 1992, aged 81, in Woodland Hills, California.
