She was born Rosalie Jones in Stanford, Texas, on 11th January 1911. She first appeared in Hollywood in 1930 and was signed as a starlet by Fox and loaned out to Warner Bros and other studios during her career. All of her 24 film parts from 1930 onwards, including Paramount on Parade as a Chorus Girl, and in 1935 , The Case of the Curious Bride as a Reporter, were minor roles, or chorus girls, and then she took a 11 year break from film. She did get to star in a low budget cinema serial called ‘ Clancy of the Mounted ‘ in 1932, but had limited screen time as Clancy’s wife, despite 12 episodes being made. Between 1935 and 1945 it is known she was married twice and had a child from each marriage, Ivor and Melissa . In 1946 she returned to the screen in two minor role parts, one in a Bette Davis picture and the other starring Barbara Stanwyck. Then she emigrated to London in the late 1940s and started a relationship with a Lieutenant in the Grenadier Guards, Alan Norwell Clark from Holmwood Lodge, Surrey, UK. Although there is documentation of friends congratulations and a newspaper announcement of their forthcoming marriage in 1950, there seems to be no marriage, between the two, officially registered. Nothing more was heard until her husband / partner, Alan, passed away in 1988, and her death in 2000, aged 89. Strangely, there was an old leather trunk discovered in a London house clearance, either before her death or just after, which contained an amazing collection of all her personal memorabilia from her Hollywood career and family life beyond to London. On YouTube, a six minute video is listed as ‘ The Curious Case of Rosalie Roy’ . The trunk contents were allegedly sold to various buyers, eventually, and so sadly fragmenting this unique collection, and making it virtually impossible of obtaining any further information on her intimate personal life.

IMDB have completely her wrong birth date, place and death date on their site. Her birth certificate was found within the memorabilia in her trunk, and the BFI do have her correct birth and death date / year on their site.

( Some of the above information is taken from the original eBay trunk sale page. There was a portion of Rosalie’s personal details mentioned in the descriptive sales passage, written by the seller, Brian Grattan. He too, has now passed away)
