Alice White (1904-1983) After leaving school she became a secretary and "script girl" for director Josef Von Sternberg. After clashing with Von Sternberg, she left his employment to work for Charlie Chaplin, who decided before long to place her in front of the camera. Her bubbly and vivacious persona led to comparisons with Clara Bow, but White's career was slow to progress. After playing a succession of flappers and gold diggers, she attracted the attention of the director and producer Mervyn LeRoy who saw potential in her.She left films in 1931 to improve her acting abilities,returning in 1933 only to have her career hurt by a scandal that erupted over her involvement with boyfriend actor J. Warburton and future husband Sy Bartlett.The charges were dropped,however the publicity was ugly and appeared in the papers for days.Alice's career took somewhat of a detour from here.Although she later married Bartlett,her reputation was tarnished and she appeared only in supporting roles after this.
