A former "Gibson Girl" and a stage performer from the age of nine, Amazonian actress Jobyna Howland acted in a couple of Norma Talmadge silent vehicles in the late 1910s but became a star in the long-running Broadway hit The Gold Diggers. She returned to films after the changeover to sound, appearing opposite the comedy team of Wheeler and Woolsey in The Cuckoos (1930) and Dixiana (1930), as Sidney Fox's mother in One in a Lifetime (1932), and as the retired burlesque dancer in Stepping Sisters (1932). Retiring due to illness in 1933, Howland was the sister of supporting actor Olin Howlin and the wife of novelist Arthur Stringer.
