Sound Films

Clara Kimball Young appeared in a number of talking films, in leads, featured roles, bits, and, supposedly, as an extra. I am providing only a brief listing, with a comment on Young's role if I know anything about it. Her presence in all of these films has not been confirmed. Further information on these films can be found in the Internet Movie Database or in The American Film Institute Catalog of Motion Pictures Produced in the United States. v. F3. Feature Films, 1931-1940.

Kept Husbands (1931) RKO. Young, fifth billed, has a key comic role as a society matron who bullies her "kept husband" and talks baby talk to her pekinese. Available on video.

Women Go on Forever (1931) James Cruze Productions, distributed by Tiffany. Director, Walter Lang. Screenplay, Daniel Nathan Rubin. Producer, James Cruze. Cinematographer: Charles Edgar Schoenbaum. Cast: Clara Kimball Young, Marian Nixon, Paul Page, Thomas E. Jackson, Yola d'Avril, Eddie Lambert, Nellie V. Nichols, Morgan Wallace, Maurice Black, Maurice Murphy. LOST

Still photos, pressbook, and Brief reviews


Mother and Son (1931) Trem Carr/Monogram. Interesting little film, though cheap and badly recorded. Young's performance has its ups and downs but is overall very good, especially in the climax at the card table. She still looks good here (compared to Return of Chandu). She plays an ex-gambling casino owner who is forced to return to her profession after the stock market crash, just as her son is getting involved with thrill-seeking society snobs who won't approve of her (though they are not above dropping a fortune at the tables themselves). Interesting glimpse of 1931 Reno. Available on video.

File 113 (1932) Allied.

Probation (1932) Chesterfield. Available on video, and a clip can be found on YouTube

Love Bound (1932) Peerless. AKA Murder on the High Seas. Available on video and online. This turns out to have a nice cast of silent veterans, including Montague Love, Jack Mulhall, Roy D'Arcy. Sleek Natalie Moorhead and her scumbag accomplice Roy D'Arcy are slick extortionists who have won a court case against a prominent rich person (Montague Love), whose wife (Clara Kimball Young) is so distraught that she threatens to leave him. Their fast-taliking son (Jack Mulhall) and his chauffeur (Richard Alexander) plot to expose her scheme by impersonating a wealthy Texan and his secretary on board a ship where Natalie has gone to escape her ex-husband who is vowing revenge. Lots of complications and completely unconvincing changes of heart, but the cast is enjoyable and does the best they can, so it's reasonably entertaining. Unfortunately Love and Young disappear after the first few minutes as the action moves to the ship. Given that the murder occurs in the last 5 minutes of the film, the title is entirely misleading--it is not a murder mystery. Still, it's entertaining.

I Can't Escape (1934) Beacon. Available on video.

Romance in the Rain (1934) Universal.

The Return of Chandu (1934) Principal. A serial, re-released as two features, The Return of Chandu and Chandu on the Magic Island. Available on video. Young has a prominent role as Chandu's sister who is hosting the princess that the villains keep temporarily succeeding in kidnapping. Clips are available on YouTube (1 pt. 1, there are more) , and a nitrate print (scanned to digibeta) is held at the Nederlands Filmmuseum.

She Married Her Boss (1935) Columbia. Young plays the harried nanny of bratty Edith Fellows. She is only in a couple of scenes and generally looks pretty woebegone, but she finishes up with an expression of satisfied payback as Claudette Colbert takes a hairbrush to the kid. Unfortunately the film is otherwise a mess. Further comment courtesy of Christopher Snowden: "Young is billed but onscreen for only a couple shots (and looks rather melancholy, perhaps realizing her part is ending up on the cutting room floor)"

His Night Out (1935) Universal.

Atlantic Adventure (1935) Columbia.

Fighting Youth (1935) Universal.

Fighting Coward (1935) Victory. An unpreserved nitrate print is held at the Nederlands Filmmuseum.

Hollywood Extra Girl (1935) Paramount. Short promotional film for De Mille's The Crusades. Young, who is third billed, has a touching bit as an embittered extra wearily applying her makeup and saying she keeps at it to feed her family. Copies (preserved) of this film are held at the Nederlands Filmmuseum and UCLA

The Crusades (1935) Paramount. According to contemporary newspaper articles, Young was an extra in this film.

The Drunkard (1935) Weiss Productions. Young, with face partially obscured by a large hat, has only a brief bit as a skeptical friend of one of the producers, and is not in the play proper.

Ants in the Pantry (1936) Columbia. A Three Stooges short in which Young has a prominent part as a society woman throwing a party, while The Stooges, playing exterminators, plant various vermin in her house and attempt to eradicate them. She gets ants dumped on her back, has her coat eaten by moths, and a mouse put on her foot. Contrary to reports in Films in Review, she is not hit with a pie. She gives a spirited and expressive performance and holds her own well with the Stooges. A clip is available on YouTube and the Nederlands Filmmuseum has an unpreserved 35mm nitrate negative and a 16mm print.

Three on the Trail (1936) Paramount. A Hopalong Cassidy western. Available on video.

Oh, Susanna! (1936) Republic. A Gene Autry western. Available on video.

The Rogue's Tavern (1936) Puritan. Old dark house mystery with Clara in a key role with a big scene at the end. Available on video.

The Last Assignment (1936)

Dangerous Waters (1936) Universal. Unbilled.

The Black Coin (1936) A serial. Incomprehensible (and interminable). Ralph Graves is so bad that they keep him off the screen as much as possible, leaving the action to Dave O'Brien and Ruth Mix. Clara plays Dave O'Brien's Mexican aunt. She sports a light accent is very attractively garbed in a black dress and mantilla. It's a small part and she only appears in a handful of episodes.

Silent Short Films

Clara Kimball Young appeared in many Vitagraph films from at least 1912 to 1915, though some sources place her there as early as 1909. These films are not well documented, so this is only a provisional list. Most are from American film index, 1908-1915 by Einar Lauritzen, and its index American Film Personnel and Company Credits, 1908-1920, by Paul C. Spehr, supplemented by John Cocchi's list which appeared in Films in Review in October 1961. I have found that some films, for which she is listed in some sources, she does not actually appear (i.e. Ransomed, or, A Prisoner of War (1910), Lady Godiva (1911)). A 1927 series of articles in Saturday Evening Post by Norma Talmadge had photographs of Young said to be from "The Mills of the Gods," and "The Suffragette", but she is clearly not in the former, at least not in the print at the Thought Equity website. I have not added to the list as the titles may be misremembered by 1927. I have added comments when I have seen the film, and archival location when available. All are from Vitagraph unless otherwise noted.
