Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A pretty, blonde ingenue of the 1920s, Betty Ross Clarke had toured in the hit play Fair and Warmer prior to entering films as Katherine de Vaucelles opposite William Farnum's Fran├žois Villon in If I Were King (1920). She was also Roscoe Arbuckle's leading lady in the comedy Brewster's Millions (1921), but then did mostly programmers. Leaving films in 1924 in favor of the stage, Clarke returned as a character actress in the sound era and is perhaps best remembered for replacing an otherwise engaged Sara Haden as Aunt Milly in two Andy Hardy comedies, Judge Hardy's Children and Love Finds Andy Hardy (both 1938).
