Biography

Blonde and uncommonly pretty, Elaine Shepard had her hands full in her first screen assignment, Republic Pictures' 15-chapter serial Darkest Africa (1936), what with Big Game hunter Clyde Beatty and pudgy circus tyke Manuel King attempting (and succeeding) in stealing every scene. She had even less luck in her second film, the Our Gang short Night N' Gales (1937), in which she was Darla's mother and married to the fey Johnny Arthur. The remainder of Shepard's ten-year or so screen career was spent playing secretaries and chorus girls and is rather less memorable. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, All Movie Guide
