Blonde and blue-eyed, Miriam Seegar had appeared in several stage productions in London's West End and even made a couple of British silent films prior to signing with Fox at the dawn of sound. She was properly frightened as Richard Dix's leading lady in the first audible screen version of Seven Keys to Baldpate (1929) and played the nominal heroine of one of those early talkie all-star affairs, Fox Movietone Follies of 1930. It was downhill from there, however, and she left films in 1933. Long in retirement, Seegar was one of several erstwhile famous names to appear in the self-explanatory 2000 documentary I Used to Be in Pictures. She died of natural causes at age 103 in January 2011.
