Colleen Moore Overview:

Legendary actress, Colleen Moore, was born Kathleen Morrison on Aug 19, 1899 in Port Huron, MI. Moore died at the age of 88 on Jan 25, 1988 in Paso Robles, CA and was cremated and her ashes scattered in her garden.


Cute, chirpy American actress with dark, bobbed hair. Her appeal was somewhat akin to that of Mary Pickford, although she was often to be seen as madcap flappers in frothy comedies. Did not adapt well to sound and, after drifting on for a few years, retired on her second marriage in 1937.
