Although she started acting in movies during the silent era, making her last silent picture, "Hugon, the Mighty," in 1918, Australian actress Marjorie Bennett wouldn't make the transition into talking pictures until 1946. She returned to acting that year with an uncredited role as an antique shop assistant in the Sherlock Holmes crime drama "Dressed to Kill." The following year she played a bit role as a maid in the Charlie Chaplin-directed black comedy "Monsieur Verdoux" and acted in several other uncredited roles as a maid or housekeeper in films like 1952's "The Steel Trap," 1953's "So Big," and 1957's "Man of a Thousand Faces." Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Bennett guest-starred on several notable television shows, including "Mission: Impossible," "Happy Days," and "CHiPs." She made her last on-screen appearance in 1980 on the comedy/drama series "Barney Miller."
