Jean Dixon1896 — 1981 Age: 84 years old
Connecticut-born Jean Dixon had an auspicious theatre debut: on a Parisian stage with Sarah Bernhardt while still a student at a French university. Upon her return to the U.S. in 1921, she made her Broadway debut, and thereafter appeared in many stage productions, on Broadway and across the country, before Hollywood called her in 1929. She most often appeared as the streetwise, smart-mouthed friend of the leading lady. Her most famous appearance would probably be as Molly in the classic screwball comedy My Man Godfrey (1936).
