Mae Madison

Mae Madison


Born Mariska Megyzsi to Hungarian parents (her father was a violin maker who played in the San Francisco Symphony), Mae was one of those gals destined to be forever cast in the chorus line of lightweight musicals without ever attracting much notice. The exception was, in this case, the attention of numerous potential suitors, who included such luminaries as D.W. Griffith, Errol Flynn and Gary Cooper. A stunning blue-eyed blonde, Mae initially trained as a singer but began her career at the age of nine as a hoofer with 'The Megland Kiddies'. Someone once described her voice" as sounding like Betty Boop after one too many Martinis". Mae graduated from there to become a mainstay of the many lavish Busby Berkeley musicals made at Warner Brothers. She later recalled "When you worked for Bus, you always had a job!".
