A blond leading lady of low-budget melodramas of the late '20s, Chicago-born Shirley Palmer also played supporting roles in more upscale surroundings, such as Sam Goldwyn's Ronald Colman-Vilma Banky vehicle The Magic Flame (1927), in which she played the unfaithful wife of a nobleman. She was much more visible in potboilers, however, appearing opposite action hero Charles Hutchison in The Winning Wallop (1926), and as the leading lady of The Eagle of the Night, a ten-chapter serial co-starring stunt pilot Frank Clarke. Retiring from the screen in 1934, Palmer later became the wife of television writer John Collier.
