Sally Eilers

Sally Eilers (December 11 1908 – January 5 1978) was an American actress.

Born as Dorothea Sally Eilers in New York City to a Jewish-American mother and an Irish-American father, Eilers made her film debut, aged 18, in 1927 in "The Red Mill", directed by Fatty Arbuckle. After several minor roles, she found work with Mack Sennett as one of his "bathing beauties" in several comedy short-films, along with Carole Lombard, who had been a school friend. In 1928 she was voted as one of the WAMPAS Baby Stars, a yearly list of young actresses nominated by exhibitors based on their box-office appeal.

Eilers was a popular figure in early-1930s Hollywood, known for her high spirits and vivacity. Her films were mostly comedies and crime melodramas such as "Quick Millions" (1931) with Spencer Tracy and George Raft, but by the end of the decade her popularity had waned, and her subsequent film appearances were few. She made her final film appearance in 1950.

During her final years, Eilers suffered poor health, and died from a heart attack in Woodland Hills, California, at the age of 69.
