One of Greta Garbo's many doubles, Rae Randall (born Sigrun Salvason) had been a dancer prior to signing a contract with Cecil B. De Mille, who cast her in a bit in The King of Kings (1927). Randall had little more to do in De Mille's The Godless Girl (1929), where, along with Betty Boyd and other girls, she nearly lost her life when an on-set fire went out of control. She became Garbo's dance double in Mata Hari (1931) but Randall's career had been going nowhere. Her body was found on May 4, 1934. Foul play was suspected at first but her death was eventually pronounced a suicide.
