An operatically trained singer who had appeared in Earl Carroll's revue, blue-eyed, auburn-haired Helen Wright was awarded a contract with Universal in 1930 and starred opposite Glenn Tryon in the screen version of Dames Ahoy (1930), a comedy about three sailors searching for a cheating blonde (Gertrude Astor). Although receiving good reviews, neither Tryon nor Wright enjoyed much success in talkies, the latter leaving films altogether after a low-budget Hoot Gibson oater, Spurs (1930). She should not be confused with the veteran character actress (A Doll's House, 1917) of the same name.
