Born Jean Walasek (some sources give Wallasek) in Chicago to John T. Walasek and Mary A. Walasek (née Sharkey), Wallace began her career as a model then got her first small movie role at the age of seventeen. She was married three times: to her Jigsaw co-star Franchot Tone from 1941 to 1948, to former US Army Captain Jim Lloyd Randall (marriage and annulment in 1950), and to actor Cornel Wilde (her co-star in The Big Combo and Lancelot and Guinevere) from 1951 to 1981. She had two sons with Tone (Pascal "Pat" Franchot Tone (b. July 29, 1943; Thomas Jefferson Tone b. September 16, 1945) and one with Wilde (Cornel Wilde, b. December 19, 1967). She attempted suicide in 1946 with sleeping pills, and in 1949 with a self-inflicted knife wound.
