Born Gladys Cronin in Logansport, Indiana, Christy left Indiana and relocated to California where she attended Polytechnic High School in Los Angeles. She intended to pursue a career in business, but was persuaded by friends to try acting. She made her film debut in a bit part in the 1927 film Long Pants, starring Harry Langdon. That same year, she awarded an Al Christie comedy leading lady film contract in May 1927. She appeared in film comedies with Bobby Vernon and Neal Burns. In 1928, Christy was selected by Harold Lloyd from more than fifty applicants to play his leading lady in the comedy Speedy (1928). That same year, she was selected one of thirteen WAMPAS Baby Stars.
Following her success in Speedy, Christy vacationed in New York. When she returned to Hollywood, she discovered that she had been forgotten. She returned to acting with parts in collegian film serials with Universal Pictures. In 1931, Christy sued the Herbert M. Baruch Corporation for $100,730 in damages. She said she sustained multiple fractures and other injuries when she drove her car into a ditching machine, which she contended was left on the highway by the defendants, without the proper lights. It is not clear what the verdict was. She made her last onscreen appearance in the 1932 film Behind Stone Walls, starring Edward J. Nugent.
Ann Christy died in Vernon, Texas of a heart attack in 1987, aged 82.
