Profile Bio Text
Joyce Compton (January 27, 1907 – October 13, 1997) was an American actress. She was born Olivia Joyce Compton in Lexington, Kentucky and not "Eleanor Hunt" as is frequently erroneously stated.[1] (She had appeared in the film Good Sport (1931) with Hunt and this confusion in an early press article followed Compton throughout her career.) After graduating high school she spent two years studying at Tulsa University, studying dramatics, art, music and dancing. She won a personality and beauty and contest and spent two months in a film studio as an extra. Compton first made a name for herself when she was named one of the WAMPAS Baby Stars in 1926, alongside: Mary Brian, Dolores Costello, Joan Crawford, Dolores del Río, Janet Gaynor and Fay Wray. Compton appeared in a long string of mostly B-movies from the 1920s through the 1950s. She was a comedy actress and protested at being stereotyped as a "dumb blonde" [2] Compton and Robert Benchley in Bedtime Story Among her over two hundred films[3] were Imitation of Life, Magnificent Obsession, The Awful Truth, Mildred Pierce, and The Best Years of Our Lives.[4] A devout Christian, on her gravestone, just beneath her dates of birth and death, is written "Christian Actress".[5] She died from natural causes, aged 90, and was laid to rest in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.

Wiki Bio Text
==Joyce Compton== Actress - ===Born=== January 27, 1907 in Lexington, Kentucky, USA ===Died=== October 13, 1997 in Los Angeles, California, USA ===Birth Name=== Olivia Joyce Compton ===Height=== 5' 5" (1.65 m) ===Mini Bio (1)=== Joyce Compton was born on January 27, 1907 in Lexington, Kentucky, USA as Olivia Joyce Compton. She was an actress, known for The Awful Truth (1937), Christmas in Connecticut (1945) and Dark Alibi (1946). She was married to William Francis Kaliher. She died on October 13, 1997 in Los Angeles, California, USA. ===Spouse (1)=== [[William Francis Kaliher]] (29 October 1955 - 1956) ( divorced) ===Trivia (9)=== She had to use her own gowns, furs and jewels in many of the low budget movies she appeared in. Worked in two-reel comedies for Mack Sennett and later played dumb blonde foils for such comics as Bobby Clark, Paul McCullough and Charley Chase. Was a good, off-the-set friend of actress Clara Bow. She was a WAMPAS Baby Star of 1926, along with Mary Astor, Mary Brian, Dolores Costello, Joan Crawford, Marceline Day, Dolores del Rio, Janet Gaynor and Fay Wray, amongst others. Her parents saw her movie star potential and moved the family from Oklahoma to Hollywood. She was briefly engaged to Joel McCrea in the late 1920s. Specialised in playing dizzy blondes, usually night club singers, waitresses or chorines. A beauty contest winner, she appeared in films from 1925. Apart from a three-months spell of married bliss in 1956, she lived with her parents. She eventually quit acting to become a part-time nurse. Good-looking, blond-haired actress, typically in roles conveying severe brainpower deprivation, in US films from 1925 through the early 50's. ===Personal Quotes (1)=== [as to why Fox Films dropped her contract] Here they had tried to change me to a more sophisticated type in appearance and otherwise by cutting and dyeing my hair. I thought they took me away from my natural appearance and comedy flair. Isn't that the way it goes? Sign you for what you have to offer, mess around and ruin it all, then give up and toss you out.
