Likeable blonde leading lady Irene Hervey entered films as an MGM contract player in 1933. For her first few years before the camera, she did yeoman work as a bit player in features and supporting actress in MGM's short subjects. Free-lancing in the mid-1930s, Hervey worked her way up to leads; one of her more offbeat performances was as a Gilbert and Sullivan actress in 1936's The Girl Said No. From 1938 through 1943, Hervey worked at Universal, where she seemingly did everything she was asked: she appeared opposite James Stewart in the big-budget Destry Rides Again (1939), was top-billed in such "B"s as Frisco Lil (1942), looked frightened in the bottom-bill horror film Night Monster (1942), and even did a stint as a dauntless serial heroine in Gangbusters (1940). She took several years off to devote herself to her family, then returned before the cameras in supporting parts in the late 1940s. In 1965, Hervey was featured on a weekly basis as meddlesome Aunt Meg on the tongue-in-cheek private eye TV series Honey West. Married for several years to film star Allan Jones, Irene Hervey is the mother of singer Jack Jones.
