Katherine Locke achieved most of her fame on Broadway; during the late '30s she was among the Great White Way's brightest lights. Locke also occasionally dabbled in films during the '40s and '50s. Born in Russia but raised in the U.S. on the East Coast, she was originally groomed to be a concert pianist at New York's Damrosch Academy. Locke, however, rebelled against her family's wishes and ran off to Southern California to join the Potboilers, a vibrant group of young actors in Los Angeles. While learning to act on stage, Locke occasionally obtained bit movie roles. She won her first major film role in the crime drama Straight from the Shoulder (1938).
