I was born on May 12th 1907 in Hartford connecticut. I had five siblings, Tom,Dick,Bob,Marion and Peg. When I was 14 I found my brother Tom hanging in the attic. He was twelve. I still have nightmares.

I graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 1928. I was married breifly to Ludlow Ogden Smith from 1928 to 1934. My senior year I started getting active in theatre, moved to New York and got my first show, The Big Pond. I was fired after one night.

In 1932, I appeared on Broadway in The Warrior's Husband.I was good. Real good. It led to screen tests, and Hollywood. My first role on the silver screen was opposite John Barrymore in A Bill of Divorcement. I made many films in the thirties, and bagged my first Oscar for Morning Glory in 1933.

In 1939 I again returned to New York to star on Broadway, this time in The Philadelphia Story as Tracy Lord, a role playwright Philip Barry had written for me. The play was a tremendous success. Howad Hughes bought me the film rights and I sold them to L.B. Mayer and MGM on the condition that I would star. The movie, like the play, was successful, earning me, Cary Grant and James Stewart Academy Award nominations (Stewart won).
