Died: May 25, 1995 in Orange, California, USA
~Biography~
Like her sister, Marceline Day, blond, limpid-eyed Alice Day (born Newlin) was a Mack Sennett Bathing
Beauty and a WAMPAS Baby Star, in her case, in 1928. She later appeared opposite baby-faced
comedian Harry Langdon and was more or less indistinguishable from a host of other ingénues, sister
Marceline included. Universal cast her opposite the genial Reginald Denny in Red Hot Speed (1929), a
breezy comedy in which she played a speed-happy debutante and for which she earned several very
good reviews. Although studio heir Carl Laemmle Jr. took a personal interest (reportedly much to Papa
Laemmle's regret), Day's career at Universal went nowhere and she ended up in Poverty Row quickies
from Chesterfield and Tiffany. In 1932, she married stockbroker Jack Cohn, a union that lasted seven
years and ended in a protracted court battle for custody of their children.
