40 Gorgeous Photos of Margaret Lindsay in the 1930s and ’40s

Born 1910 in Dubuque, Iowa, American actress Margaret Lindsay earned her a contract at Warner Bros. when working in Cavalcade (1933). Her time as a Warner Bros. contract player during the 1930s was particularly productive.

Lindsay was noted for her supporting work in successful films of the 1930s and 1940s such as Baby Face (1933), Jezebel (1938) and Scarlet Street (1945) and her leading roles in lower-budgeted B movie films such as the Ellery Queen series at Columbia in the early 1940s. Critics regard her portrayal of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Hepzibah Pyncheon in the 1940 film The House of the Seven Gables as Lindsay’s standout career role.

Lindsay made her television debut in 1950 in The Importance of Being Earnest. More television work followed. She appeared in only four films during the 1950s and two in the 1960s. Her final feature film was Tammy and the Doctor (1963).

Lindsay never married. She died at the age of 70 of emphysema in 1981 at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles. Take a look at these gorgeous photos to see the beauty of young Margaret Lindsay in the 1930s and 1940s.
