Biography by Hal Erickson

In films from 1919, Aggie Herring was a useful comic foil for such comedians as Harold Lloyd. Aggie's dramatic assignments included the role of Miss Corney in Oliver Twist (1922). She also played Maggie Kelly in director Frank Capra's very first Columbia feature, That Certain Thing (1928), which earned her a photo in Capra's autobiography The Name Above the Title. Aggie Herring continued portraying frontier mothers, flower ladies, dowagers and charwomen until her retirement in 1938, a year before her death.
