  The daughter of stage and bit film actress Laura Parrish, Helen Parrish began appearing in silent films as a very young child. She made the relatively rare successful transition from child actor, and began playing adult roles at Universal and RKO in 1940 before her career went into a slow decline. She again transitioned, this time away from motion pictures, and turned to television. After a lengthy if somewhat unremarkable career (which nonetheless earned her a star in the Motion Pictures section of the Hollywood Walk of Fame), Helen succumbed to cancer, weeks before her 35th birthday.

Many thanks - this was another black and white conversion; the dress was sort of two-toned, with neutral colors , I think .... which I changed to blue :grin: :whip:

Another beautiful lady painted with your usual flair. I have said it before, but you always bring us lovely works and the added bonus of a little story, which brings them to life. Thank you for sharing with us. Keep safe David :ok: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

So glad you enjoy them Tom! One tries to keep the stories concise - I'm sure not everyone is very interested in trivia or backstories, but I'm a sucker for all of it, especially in finding out what became of all the mostly forgotten :grin: :whip:

Perhaps not everyone is interested in the backstories, but I find them fascinating. Quite often, I will google some supporting actor who comes to mind from my past memories of movies long past, and find a life lived and details I would never have known. It makes faces from the past come alive as real people. I don't say I will remember the details, but I love the journey. So do keep up your work, you know at least one other person here is listening. And a sincere thank you ! :ok: :ok: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :ok: :ok:
