The Family of Marjorie Lord, an actress of the Golden Age of Hollywood, is saddened to announce that Marjorie passed away on Saturday, November 28, 2015 at her home in Beverly Hills.

Marjorie began her long and varied career on the Broadway stage and in feature films as the sweet-natured ingénue. Born in San Francisco in 1918, her family transported themselves to New York City when she was fifteen where she enrolled in both acting and ballet at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Chaliff School of Dance. Her first job was in 1936 as an 18-year-old on Broadway in "The Old Maid" starring Judith Anderson. After signing with RKO Studios she was cast in the feature films Border Cafe (1937) and Forty Naughty Girls (1937).

A few years later, she met actor John Archer (b.1914-d.1999 who most notably starred in White Heat with James Cagney and Destination Moon) after they appeared together in the stage production of "The Male Animal". Married at the end of 1941, they settled in Hollywood after playing Los Angeles in a stage tour of "Springtime for Henry" with Edward Everett Horton in 1942. She earned a Universal Pictures contract in the process and throughout the 1940s and 1950s alternated between theater and film. Son Gregg became an airline pilot after serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War as a pilot of F4 Phantoms off the USS Enterprise, and daughter Anne Archer followed in her parents' footsteps as an Oscar nominated (Fatal Attraction) and Golden Globe (Short Cuts) winning actress.
