A stage actress from the age of ten (when she appeared as Joan of Arc in a Red Cross benefit), brunette Marion Burns appeared on stage with Frederic March in The Royal Family of Broadway in 1928 and in The Front Page. Contracted by Fox, Burns was more often than not lent to independent B-Western producers, to appear opposite the likes of Bill Cody and (twice) John Wayne, a fact that may have shortened her screen career considerably. Divorced from actor Bruce MacFarlane, she later married Kane Richmond, her co-star in the jungle melodrama Flirting With Danger (1934). They were re-teamed nine years later for the Columbia serial Brenda Starr, Reporter (1945), Burns' final film performance.
