      Mini-Biography
      Pretty, blue-eyed Lucile Browne started out, like many another Hollywood actress, as a model.
      Unlike other models, however, she didn't go directly from there to films;
      she joined a theatrical troupe in Chicago, and spent time gaining experience before she headed to Hollywood,
      where in 1930 she was signed by Fox Film Corp.
      After parts in a few comedies and romance pictures, she found her niche in westerns and action serials.
      Her pretty, girl-next-door looks made her a natural to be menaced by sundry villains
      and rescued by stout-hearted heroes, and she proceeded to do just that for many studios, both major and minor.
      It was on the set of a 1932 Universal serial that she met actor James Flavin;
      they soon married and stayed together for more than 40 years, until his death.
      Lucile basically retired from films in 1938 to raise her family,
      appearing in only a few films until her death in 1976.

    • Most moviegoers are attracted by the star, but backing that star are a myriad
      of co-stars, support and character actors.

      One of many, who only made a couple of movies with
      Duke was Lucille Browne.

      She made a rare appearance ,in an equally rare movie , broadcast on TV yesterday.
      The movie was
      Brand of Hate (1935) starring Duke friend Bob Steele.

      A pretty corny affair, and not even in the same league as Duke's movies of the same year,
      e.g. Texas Terror and Rainbow Valley (1935)
      the two films Lucille Browne appeared with Duke.

      Lucille always appeared cast as the sexual attraction to all villains and rogues alike,
      until rescued by the likes of Duke or Bob Steele.

      In these recent post-silent times, movies were still very staged and theatrical,
      and it is amusing to see the harassed
      Lucille Browne, floundring her arms and pulling hammy facial expressions,
      as if saying 'Get off, go way,you scoundrel!!'

      Dig a couple of films out of the collection, watch and have some fun!!
