Helen Gilbert

Born: 4 July 1915, Warren, Ohio, USA
Died: 23 October 1995, Los Angeles, California, USA

Before becoming a movie actress Helen Gilbert was a cellist, a concert artist and was eventually invited to play for the MGM orchestra. Helen Gilbert was married six times, which could explain why she didn't make many films. She often appeared in big films, but in smaller roles. Her beauty is obvious but her acting ability was run-of-the-mill and therefore there were plenty of actresses to take the parts that she found herself doing. Her sister was Mari Finley a bit part actress.
