Former child star Edith Fellows died of natural causes Sunday at age 88. She's pictured here on a trading card with Claudette Colbert in a shot from one of her most popular and important movies, She Married Her Boss (1935), the film which landed her a long-term contract with Columbia.
Fellows was one of 16 stars interviewed by Michael Ankerich in his book The Sound of Silence where he covers her career and personal hardships which led to twenty years away from the screen. In explaining to Ankerich why she preferred her brattier roles Fellows said, "I could let off a lot of steam that I couldn't let off at home ... I could throw things, and believe me, I threw" (106).
You'll find additional coverage of Edith Fellows' passing on Laura's Miscellaneous Musings, which is where I first heard the sad news.
