Bebe Daniels ACTOR


Bebe Daniels was born on January 14th, 1901 in Dallas, Texas with the birth name Bebe Virginia Daniels.  Her father was a theater manager and her mother an actress so show business was in her blood from an early age.  She became involved in the acting industry as a child actress.  By the age of four he was already touring in such stage productions as, "Richard III" and "The Squaw Man".  She soon followed by her first leading role in a stage production at only seven years old in, "A Common Enemy".
It did not take long before Daniels began working in the film industry in a number of short films such as, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz".  Soon Hal Roach chose her to star in his shorts titled, "Lonosome Luke" as the leading lady at the age of fourteen.  She even had a brief relationship with Roach, however she was so determined to pursue a career as a film actress, she would let no relationship get in the way of pursuing her dream.
After gaining some more experience as a film actress in these shorts, she was contacted by Cecile B. DeMille and was convinced to sign a contract with Paramount appearing in such films as, "Male and Female" (1919) and "The Affair of Anatol" (1921).  The silent era was coming to an end and Daniels had no issues making the transition to sound films.
In total she appeared in over 230 films during the course of her career.  Some of her later career film roles were in, "Monsieur Beaucaire", "Miss Bluebeard" and "The Manicure Girl", "Wild Wild Susan". 
Along with her talent as an actress and her exquisite beauty, she was also a very talented singer and had such hits as, "Rio Rita" (1929) and "42nd Street" (1933).  Other successful films with Warner Brothers Studio's were, "My Past" (1931), "Honor of the Family" (1931), "The Maltese Falcon" (1931) and her final film role in, "Registered Nurse" (1934).
Bebe married only once throughout her lifetime to Ben Lyon in 1930 and together they had two children and remained married until she passed away on March 16th, 1971 in London in the United Kingdom from cerebral hemorrhage.
Together with her husband she had a hit radio show in Britain and around the mid to late 30's she for the most part retired from the industry.  Together they had a hit show called, "Hi Gang".  She did for a brief time return to the United States when she was given the opportunity to work as a producer for Hal Roach and Eagle Lion.  Then in 1948, she completely chose to leave Hollywood and along with her husband starred in the British radio sitcom, "Life With the Lyons" (1951-1961), which later was made into a television program.   
After she passed away, Bebe Daniels remains were cremated and her ashes were interred in the Chapel columbarium at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood, California.
