Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gladys McConnell (October 22, 1905 - March 4, 1979) was a movie actress and aviatrix. She was born in Oklahoma City, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). Some sources list her date of birth as October 22, 1906. She was the daughter of William Marshall McConnell (born April 28, 1876 in McNairy County, Tennessee) and Harriet (aka Hattie) Sharp (born October 10, 1882 in Newbern, Tennessee). She had a sister, Hazel McConnell (born ca. 1902, Tennessee). She attended Hollywood High School. Her film career was brief, about four years from the late silent to early sound era (1926 - 1930). She sometimes used the professional name Gladys Morrow. One of her first parts came in The Devil Horse (1926). The film featured Rex the Wonder Horse, a stallion that was featured in at least fifteen films. McConnell starred with Harry Langdon in Three's A Crowd (1927). In The Chaser (1928), she played Langdon's talkative wife in a story about a married man and his tumultuous domestic life. She broke ties with the Fox Film Company over differences over her roles, choosing to freelance instead.
