1892 - 1973

Die Schauspielerin Rosemary Theby wurde als Rose Masing geboren. Sie eroberte die Welt des Kinos im Jahre 1911, als sie ihr Debüt mit "The Sacrifice" (11) feierte.
In den nächsten paar Jahren avancierte sie zu einer der begehrtesten Darstellerinnen und sie agierte in unzähligen Filmen, oftmals für Charley Chase und Mack Sennett. Dabei spielte sie in vielen Slapstick-Filmen und hatte Filmkomiker wie W.C. Fields und Oliver Hardy als Partner an ihrer Seite.

Zu ihren bekanntesten Filmen der nächsten Jahre gehören "The Illumination" (12), "Wanted, a Sister" (12), "The Two Battles" (12), "As You Like It" (12), "The Godmother" (12), "The Reincarnation of Karma" (12), "The Little Minister" (13), "The Web" (13), "The Silver Cigarette Case" (13) und "The Wager" (13).

Auch die nächsten Jahre boten ihr eine Vielzahl an Rollen und sie agierte in "Madam Coquette" (14), "The Double Life" (14), "Men at Their Best" (15), "Saved By a Dream" (15), "The Prize Story" (15), "Man and Morality" (16), "The Model Husband" (16), "The Latest in Vampires" (16), "The Hash House Mystery" (17), "The Winged Mystery" (18), "The Rogue" (18), "The Great Love" (18) von D.W. Griffith, "The Straight and Narrow" (18), "The Spender" (19) und "Upstairs and Down" (19).

In den 20er Jahren konnte sie weiterhin regelmässig vor der Kamera agieren und sie verkörperte eindrückliche Rollen in "Terror Island" (20), "Kismet" (20), "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" (21), "Shame" (21), "The Last Trail" (21), "The Eternal Flame" (22), "In Search of a Thrill" (23), "The Red Lily" (24), "As Man Desires" (25), "One Year to Live" (25), "Riding to Fame" (27), "The Chinatown Mystery" (28) und "Montmartre Rose" (29).

Der aufkommende Tonfilm beendete ihren Star-Status und die Wirtschaftskrise beutelte ihr Vermögen erheblich. Dank Freunden wie Oliver Hardy konnte sie in den 30er Jahren zumindest kleinere Rollen verkörpern, die ihr und ihrem Ehemann - dem Schauspieler und Regisseur Harry Myers - ein gesichertes Einkommen bescherten.
Zu ihren Filmen dieser Jahre gehören "Bulls and Bears" (30), "Taxi Troubles" (31), "Man on the Flying Trapeze" (35), "San Francisco" (36), "Yours for the Asking" (36), "The Devil Is Driving" (37) und "Undercover Doctor" (39).

Mit dem Film "One Million B.C." (40) verabschiedete sich Rosemary Theby von der Filmleinwand.

Rosemary Theby war u.a. mit dem Schauspieler und Regisseur Harry Myers verheiratet.
