Biography

Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Largely forgotten today, actor Monroe Owsley was born in Atlanta around the turn of the century and raised by his mother, stage actress Gertrude Owsley. His own theater career started up as a teen and he eventually hit Broadway in the mid 1920s, migrating to films around the advent of sound. His first movie role was as a young suitor in The First Kiss (1928) starring Fay Wray, but he made the most impact playing the role of Ned, the tipsy younger brother of the socialite heroine, in the first filming of Philip Barry's classic play Holiday (1930), which starred Ann Harding.
