BiographyWeatherford, Texas, USA
Brunette, petite Sharon Lynne was born D'Auvergne Sharon Lindsay in Weatherford, Texas. A former beauty contest winner, she began in show business as a nightclub singer and songwriter. Possessed of a strong, bluesy voice, she drifted towards the musical stage, eventually appearing in both the Broadway and screen versions of the musical Sunnyside Up (1929). She was also cast to good effect alongside Sue Carol in Fox Movietone Follies of 1929 (1929). Billed as 'Sharon Lynn', she had a few more minor leads in the late 1920s, then, after joining Fox, found herself relegated to the supporting cast. Read more... 'e' to her surname didn't help. For the remainder of the 1930's, Sharon Lynne played assorted 'other women', 'fickle dancers', and the like. Her last effective role was as Lola Marcel, an excellent menace to Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, in Way Out West (1937). Finding decent roles ever harder to come by, Sharon had quit the movies by the end of the decade. She was married twice, first to Benjamin Glazer, an associate producer at Paramount; secondly to John Sershen, a Beverly Hills businessman. At the time of her death in 1963, she was known as Sharon Glazer Sershen.
