Mini-Biography:
Mary MacLaren was born on January 19, 1896 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. She was an American Actress, known for Mr. Smith goes to Washington (1939), Nothing Sacred (1937), The Three Musketeers (1921), Mary MacLaren's first movie on record is from 1916. Mary MacLaren died on November 9, 1985 in Hollywood, California, USA. Her last motion picture on file dates from 1948.
Biographical Notes in German: Der Legende nach hat Lois Weber Mary MacLaren in einer Gruppe von Mädchen entdeckt, die vor den Toren der Universal warteten, um als Statisten engagiert zu werden. Lois Weber gab ihr eine erste kleine Rolle in dem sozial-kritischen Film "Where are my Children?". "Shoes" war dann ihre erste Hauptrolle. Die Rolle brachte ihr nicht nur eine Wochen-Gage von fünfunddreissig Dollar ein, sondern machte sie auch über Nacht zur gefragten Schauspielerin. "From Extra to Stardom" titelte dann auch das Motion Picture Magazine seine Story zu Mary MacLaren.
Ihr Geburtsname war MacDonald, und Mary war die jüngere Schwester der Schauspielerin Katherine MacDonald (1891-1956). Lina Basquette, die in "Shoes" eine der beiden Schwestern Marys spielte, schrieb über Katherine und Mary: "Bleich und blond, sie war Katherine MacDonalds Schwester, die viele für die grösste Schönheit des frühen Stummfilms hielten. Mary ihrerseits war recht hübsch. Im Leben und auf der Leinwand zeigte sie zwei Gesichtsausdrücke - gequält und gequält."
Mary MacLaren arbeitete erst als Model und chorus girl in ein Broadway Revue. Mit ihrer Entdeckerin Lois Weber drehte sie 1916/17 insgesamt sechs Filme: "Where Are My Children?", "Shoes", "Idle Wives", "Saving the Family Name", "Wanted: A Home" und "The Mysterious Mrs. Musslewhite", von welchen nur die ersten beiden erhalten sind. Ihre Karriere konnte sie erfolgreich bis in die frühen Zwanziger Jahre fortsetzen. Nach ihrer Heirat mit Colonel George Herbert Young zog das Ehepaar nach Indien. Nach der Scheidung 1928 versuchte sie erfolglos ein Comeback, es blieben ihr bis zum Ende nur noch kleine oder gar Statisten-Rollen.
1917 war sie nach einem Autounfall während Tagen dem Tode nah, ein zweiter Autounfall 1948 beendete dann endgültig ihre Karriere. Ihr semi-autobiographisches Buch "The Twisted Heart" über die Frau, die mit einem homosexuellen Mann verheiratet ist, wurde kaum verkauft. Ihr Leben endete in Armut, ein bescheidenes Erbe von ihrer Schwester Katherine war veruntreut worden. Mit ihren geliebten Katzen und Hunden war sie zur Shopping Bag Lady geworden. 1983 verlor sie ihr Haus in Los Angeöes und verbrachte die letzten Jahre im Virgil Convalescent Hospital. (lhg 2017)
