When her parents died, teen-age Marjorie House took over the responsibility to support her younger brother and sister. Taking the name “Marjorie Daw” from a popular children’s story, she pursued an acting career. With much determination, she was successful.

Marjorie appeared in 76 films between 1914 and 1929. Along the way, she had a brief marriage in 1923. In 1929, she married again, this time to Myron Selznick, a film executive and brother of producer David O. Selznick. When silent pictures fell of out of fashion with the popularity of “talkies,” Marjorie called it a career. She lived quietly and happily out of the spotlight until 1979 when she passed away at the age of 77.
