She made her last film appearance as a child in 1921, and returned to films with a role in King of Jazz (1930), in which she sang with Bing Crosby. She played W. C. Fields's daughter in You're Telling Me! (1934). She continued in small roles until the early 1940s. In 1936, she sang on the Flying Red Horse Tavern on CBS radio. During production of Charlie Chan on Broadway (1937), Marsh met and later married writer Charles Belden, who had co-written the film's screenplay. The marriage ended in divorce in 1943 -- first in Los Angeles, California, on August 26, 1943, followed by a second divorce October 23, 1943, "so she won't have to wait a year before remarrying." The following year Marsh made her final film appearance in Follow the Leader (1944).
