Mary Boland Career


Dustin Farnum performed on Broadway in 1907, and she had appeared in 11 Broadway productions, including with John Drew, becoming his "leading lady in New York and on the road." In 1915, she made her silent film debut for Triangle Studios. She entertained troops in France during World War I and then returned to America. She left filmmaking in 1920, returning to the stage and appearing in numerous Broadway productions, including The Torch-Bearers (1922). She became well-known as a comedian.

Boland's greatest success on the stage in the 1920s was the comedy The Cradle Snatchers (1925–26), in which Edna May Oliver and Margaret Dale, both abandoned by their husbands, take on young lovers. This performance, according to Roy Liebman, helped identify her as the person she'd be identifying with for the remainder of her career. Humphrey Bogart, one of his first appearances, was Boland's paramour. Gertrude Lennox had appeared with Bogart in the 1923 comedy Meet the Wife.

After an eleven-year absence in 1931, she returned to Hollywood under contract to Paramount Pictures. She made a lot more film success with her second attempt, becoming one of the 1930s' most well-known character actresses, frequently appearing in her films and occasionally appearing in a sequence of comedies opposite Charles Ruggles.

Boland appeared in several films, including Ruggles of Red Gap, The Big Broadcast of 1936, Danger - Love at Work, Nothing but Trouble, and Julia Misbehaves. She is perhaps best known for her portrayals of Countess DeLave in The Women (1939) and Mrs. Bennet in Pride and Prejudice (1940).

Boland starred in the 1935 Cole Porter musical Jubilee and appeared in the 1948 film "One Fine Day" with Charlie Ruggles. She appeared on Broadway for the last time in 1954 at the age of seventy-two. Lullaby, the attempt, was unsuccessful. Her last appearance was in the '55 television version of The Women who was reminiscing her film role.
