Biography

A child actress in her hometown of Minneapolis, Muriel Evans began her screen career in 1927 as a leading lady to comedian Lupino Lane. Her parents, however, demanded that she finish her education and she was offscreen until 1932. Blonde and, according to at least one reviewer, "unspoiled," Evans enjoyed a busy career in mainly B-films, including no less than 13 series Westerns with the likes of John Wayne, Buck Jones, and Tex Ritter. In the late 1930s, her career came full circle when she starred in two-reel comedies opposite James Finlayson. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
