40 Gorgeous Photos of American Actress Sally Eilers in the 1930s

Born 1908 in New York City, American actress Sally Eilers made her film debut in 1927 in The Red Mill. After several minor roles as an extra, in 1927–1928 she found work with Mack Sennett as one of his “flaming youth” comedians in several comedy short subjects, along with Carole Lombard, who had been a school friend.

In 1928, Eilers was voted as one of the WAMPAS Baby Stars, a yearly list of young actresses selected by publicity people in the film business, with selection based on the actresses’ having “shown the most promise during the past 12 months.”

Eilers was a popular figure in early-1930s Hollywood, known for her high spirits and vivacity. Her films were mostly comedies and crime melodramas such as Quick Millions (1931) with Spencer Tracy and George Raft. By the end of the decade, her popularity had waned, and her subsequent film appearances were few. She made her final film appearance in Stage to Tucson (1950).

During her final years, Eilers suffered poor health, and died from a heart attack in1978, in Woodland Hills, California, at the age of 69. Take a look at these gorgeous photos to see the beauty of young Sally Eilers in the 1930s.
