Marjorie Lane was a staple from the talent pool at MGM during the 1930s. However, most filmgoers have never seen her face. She was a vocalist who is best known for dubbing the singing voice of actress and dancer Eleanor Powell in the movies Born to Dance (1936), Broadway Melody of 1936, Rosalie (1937) and Broadway Melody of 1938. Lane notably performed an engaging duet with James Stewart – Easy to Love.
Marjorie was actually discovered by movie mogul Louis B. Mayer while interpreting the music of the great songwriters of the day, including her favorite composer, Cole Porter. She married character actor Brian Donlevy, and Eleanor Powell was her Maid of Honor. During their 11-year marriage, friends they were privately associated with: Tyrone Power, Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, and Ronald Reagan. Despite her famous associations, she retired from cinema by 1940.
Marjorie Lane was 100.
