A beautiful brunette from England, Phyllis Barry grabbed the choice role of 1932, that of the melancholy shop girl turned mistress in Cynara, the much awaited screen version of E.M. Harwood and Robert Gore-Browne's 1928 play. Based on poet Ernest Dawson's immortal line, "I have been faithful to thee, Cynara, in my fashion," the triangle drama was too downbeat for popular appeal and rather than enjoying instant stardom, Barry was relegated to playing a foil for comics Wheeler and Woolsey in Diplomaniacs and Buster Keaton in What, No Beer? (both 1933). Despite these setbacks, she hung around until the late '40s, playing ever-smaller roles.
