Reportedly a real-life society debutante, beautiful brunette Adrienne Ames was always more noted for her offscreen escapades than anything she did on celluloid. Active in New York society after her marriage to stockbroker Stephen Ames, Ames (née Adrienne Ruth McClure) was discovered by a talent scout from Paramount and said to have been signed without even the hint of a screen test. Divorced from Ames, she married action star Bruce Cabot and their often-tumultuous home life frequently made the headlines. Onscreen, she usually played the "other woman" in major productions while headlining minor fare such as Guilty As Hell (1932) and The Death Kiss (1933). She left films in 1939 and later starred on New York radio.
