Rose Hobart was called to Hollywood in 1930 to repeat her stage success in "Liliom". She had a few more starring roles in the early 1930s, including the role of Muriel Carew (Jekyll's fiancÃ©e) in 1931's "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". Throughout the 1940s she played character roles, often as spiteful, vindictive women, in contrast to her earlier, gentle heroines.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
