Biography

Florence Rice Florence Rice Pictures Rotten Tomatoes

Florence Rice was born in Cleveland, Ohio, the daughter of Grantland Rice and Fannie Katherine Hollis. She became an actress during the early 1930s and, after several Broadway roles, eventually made her way to Hollywood, where she acted in almost fifty films between 1934 and 1943.

Blonde, pretty, and wholesome, Rice was cast as the reliable girlfriend in several films for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGM gradually provided her with more substantial roles, occasionally in prestige productions. Rice never became a major figure in films, but she performed in a number of screen pairings with Robert Young.

Her most widely seen performances were in Double Wedding (1937), in which she was billed third in the cast credits behind William Powell and Myrna Loy, Sweethearts (1938) with Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, and The Marx Brothers film At The Circus (1939).

She married four times, with her fourth marriage lasting until her death in Honolulu from lung cancer.
