Biography

From Wikipedia

Ann Christy (May 31, 1905 – November 14, 1987) was an

American motion picture actress.

Born Gladys Cronin in Logansport, Indiana, Christy left

Indiana and relocated to California where she attended Polytechnic High School

in Los Angeles. She intended to pursue a career in business, but was persuaded

by friends to try acting. She made her film debut in a bit part in the 1927

film Long Pants, starring Harry Langdon. That same year, she awarded an Al

Christie comedy leading lady film contract in May 1927. She appeared in film

comedies with Bobby Vernon and Neal Burns. In 1928, Christy was selected by

Harold Lloyd from more than fifty applicants to play his leading lady in the

comedy Speedy (1928). That same year, she was selected one of thirteen WAMPAS

Baby Stars.

Following her success in Speedy, Christy vacationed in New

York. When she returned to Hollywood, she discovered that she had been

forgotten. She returned to acting with parts in collegian film serials with

Universal Pictures.

She made her last onscreen appearance in the 1932 film

Behind Stone Walls, starring Edward J. Nugent.
