Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mary Nash (August 15, 1884 - December 3, 1976) was an American actress. Nash was born Mary Ryan on August 15, 1884 (some say 1885) in Troy, New York, to parents James H. and Ellen Ryan. She was educated at the Convent of St. Anne in Montreal and trained for acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She was the elder sister to theater actress Florence Nash. She was a noted stage actress in New York and successful in vaudeville before moving to Hollywood in 1934, where she was in films until 1946. According to Allmovie: "Nash was often cast as seemingly mild-mannered women who turned vicious when challenged, as witness her work in College Scandal (1936) and Charlie Chan in Panama (1940). ... Mary Nash's most sympathetic role was as the long-suffering wife of blustering capitalist J. B. Ball in Easy Living (1937)."
