Vivienne Osborne


A supple, adventurous performer who could play a Polynesian nature child, Aloma in "Aloma of the South Seas," or the aristocratic love interest, Lady deWinter in "The Three Musketeers," Vivienne Osborne was a regular presence on Broadway during the 1920s. Equally adept at romance, comedy, or drama, Osborne had a brief silent movie career as an ingenue in 1919-1922, but her strength was focal characterization, so made her mark on Broadway. In the sound era she reactivated her film career with Paramount Pictures, playing character parts and frequently supplying the mosts memorable performance in a series of second-tier films until the Second World War.
