The distinctly urban-American character actress Jean Dixon got her theatrical start in, of all places, France, where she appeared in a Sarah Bernhardt production. On Broadway from 1921, Dixon rapidly rose to prominence in a string of comically sarcastic leading roles. She was a particular favorite of playwright George S. Kaufman, who wrote parts in such plays as Once in a Lifetime and June Moon with Jean specifically in mind. In films, Jean Dixon usually headed the supporting cast, essaying such acerbic roles as the wisecracking maid in My Man Godfrey (1936).
