Mary Hart / Lynn Roberts / Lynne Roberts

Real name: Theta May Roberts

1919 or 1922 - 1978

In the late 1930s at Republic, and billed initially as Mary Hart and then Lynn Roberts, this lovely lady was the frequent co-star of Roy Rogers as well as the heroine in THE LONE RANGER (1938) and DICK TRACY RETURNS (1938) cliffhangers.  She also played the daughter in the THE HIGGINS FAMILY (1938) film and ongoing series which was Republic's low budget competition to MGM's Hardy Family films.

These appearances occurred during her first term players contract at Republic, which ran from January, 1938 through June, 1939.  That contract provided her with some security and a regular paycheck but Republic could utilize her as much as they wanted.

She left Republic and went to other studios looking for star status, but didn't find it.  She returned to Republic in the mid 1940s and was under a term player contract from September, 1944 through March, 1948.  A typical, solid Roberts performance can be seen in the Gene Autry western SIOUX CITY SUE (1946).  She retired in the early 1950s.

Tidbit: one of the films that is shown often on AMC is the 1941 SUN VALLEY SERENADE which stars Sonja Henie and John Payne, but is generally remembered more as a showcase for Glenn Miller and his Orchestra.  Keep on eye out for "pretty ladies doing bit parts", and you will see both Sheila Ryan and Lynne Roberts in this film as both were under contract to 20th Century Fox at the time.  Hint: office receptionist and telephone operator.

Lynne Roberts
"Bette Davis, I'm Not"
by Barrie Roberts


Toward the end of her modest career in Hollywood, Lynne Roberts was quoted as saying, "Bette Davis, I‚m not! I enjoy acting and making movies, however it is a job, the only job I‚ve ever known. It is not the be all and end all of my existence. I have a family and many interests outside the film business." This statement spoke volumes when one considers the actress was the daughter of a classic "stage mother."

Lynne was born Theda Mae Roberts in El Paso, Texas, November 22, 1922, the younger of two children born to Hobart K. Roberts, a native of Texas, and his wife, May Dell Holland, who hailed from Kentucky (parents from Allen Co KY). Their other child, John, was born in 1920.

May Roberts, who had always been movie struck, named her daughter after her favorite star, Theda Bara. She always dreamed of an acting career for herself. She constantly urged her husband, a successful automobile executive in El Paso, to move to California. May wanted to be near the film studios.

Eventually, Mr. Roberts did secure a suitable position in Los Angeles, and it is said the family left El Paso for Los Angeles when Theda was only nine days old. Once in Hollywood, May Roberts set out to find work as an extra in silent films. It was not long before she had not only registered herself for work, but her two children as well. By the time they were three and five respectively, Theda and John had appeared in crowd scenes in a number of films with their mother.

Theda, meanwhile, was enrolled at Lawlor‚s Professional School. Starting at the age of four, she studied singing, dancing, dramatics, and piano in addition to regular lessons. She was soon appearing in school plays.

At six, not only had Theda done extra work in movies, but appeared on the professional stage and also on radio. At nine and eleven respectively, Theda and John, formed an act in which they sang, danced and played musical instruments. The act enjoyed a moderate success on the vaudeville circuit.

By the time Theda was twelve her figure had started to blossom. She later said, "I looked too őgrown up‚ to act in őkiddie stuff.‚" Vaudeville was dying anyway, and the act was abandoned. Around this time, Theda changed her professional name to Lynn Roberts, a name inspired by that of a character she played on stage.

The very pretty and maturing girl turned her attention to the film studios. She made the rounds of casting directors and ended up playing an unbilled bit in Republic‚s Bulldog Edition seen in 1936. She also appeared once again unbilled as one of Anne Shirley‚s student girl friends in Samuel Goldwyn‚s Stella Dallas, released early the following year. By the time Lynn was 14, her formal education had ended, and she was able to concentrate fully on obtaining a foothold in Hollywood.

Returning to Republic she was again unbilled in Circus Girl. However, executives were impressed with the youngster‚s self assurance, looks, and talent, and signed her to a contract after she had played her first credited role in another Republic production, Dangerous Holiday, released in June 1937.

The contract went into effect on January 1, 1938. Since Lynn was a minor, the document was signed by her mother. However, Mrs. Roberts and the studio thought it prudent to list Lynn‚s age as 18 rather than her actual 15, in order that she could play romantic leads without undue criticism. Her year of birth consequently was moved back to 1919 in studio publicity. Lynn was cast in Mama Runs Wild as wacky Mary Boland‚s more sober daughter, then in Call The Mesquiteers, which was to be the first of her many appearances in westerns. Lynn being a fine rider and athlete fit comfortably into the action of the western genre. After ingenue roles in such fare as The Hollywood Stadium Mystery playing the lead opposite Michael Whalen and as the daughter of James and Lucile Gleason in The Higgins Family, Republic decided Lynn would be the ideal leading lady for their new cowboy star, Roy Rogers. The studio insisted Lynn change her name to Mary Hart. As Mary Hart, Lynn achieved stardom of a sort in her subsequent pictures opposite Rogers, which were Come on Rangers, Billy The Kid Returns, Shine On Harvest Moon, In Old Caliente, Rough Riders Round Up, Frontier Pony Express, and Southward Ho. Mary Hart was billed on screen in most of these films above the title with Roy Rogers.

At this point, Lynn asked for a salary increase. The studio under the extremely frugal hand of president Herbert J. Yates refused, and her contract was terminated by mutual consent on June 22, 1939.

The family needed more money since Hobart Roberts, who had been ill for some time, became wheelchair bound in early 1939, and medical costs were extremely high. May had taken a course as a beauty operator and was working in a hairdressing salon, while brother John had given up acting to enter the business world. The family needed every penny to meet their obligations with Mr. Roberts unable to work.

Deciding to freelance, on the advice of her agent, Lynn obtained the ingenue lead at RKO opposite Eric Linden in Everything‚s On Ice which was designed as a showcase for five-year-old ice skater Irene Dare. Lynn played Irene‚s sister. The salary was four times as much as she had been making at Republic. Coincidentally cast as Lynn‚s mother in this film was an actress from the stage named Mary Hart. Lynn, who had always disliked her studio-coined name took this opportunity to return to being known professionally as Lynne (now with the added "e") Roberts.

In early 1940 Lynne was given a stock contract by Twentieth Century-Fox. After appearances in High School, a Jane Withers‚ vehicle, and a bit in Star Dust, which starred John Payne and newcomer Linda Darnell, Darryl F. Zanuck sat up and took notice of the lovely young actress. He deemed that extensive tests of Lynne should be made with a view to grooming her for possible stardom.

The studio released the following facts about Lynne. She is five feet three inches tall, has light blue eyes and auburn hair. She weighs 115 lbs. She has a spectacularly lovely complexion. She neither drinks nor smokes and rarely is seen on the nightclub scene. She loves picnics and all outdoor activities. She rides horseback, ice skates, and plays tennis. She plays the piano and dances well. Reads mostly current novels and biographies. She is crazy about animals, dogs in particular. She never gets angry or excited. Thinks its foolish. Laughs at her mistakes and never worries over anything unless it is important. She is popular with everyone with whom she comes in contact.

Lynne was cast in the lead for The Bride Wore Crutches, a romantic comedy released in May 1940. She played a newspaper reporter, but the film was roundly panned by the critics. Variety lumped Lynne in with the rest of the cast, referring to their efforts as, "stilted." Unfazed, Zanuck gave her the lead in Street of Memories, the story of an amnesiac, played by John McGuire, trying to reconstruct his past with the aid of waitress Lynne. The film was little better received by Variety which said, "The film should provide little more than playing time to round out a program asked of double bill requirements." Of Lynne they stated, "She might have screen possibilities, but has no chance here with the material and direction provided."

The studio by now seemed disappointed with Lynne‚s critical reception, blaming her rather than the weak vehicles they had provided. Darryl F. Zanuck was further upset when Lynne eloped on January 5, 1941 with William Englebert Jr., described as an airline company official. The actress-bride was only 18 years old.

Upon her return to the Fox studios after her honeymoon, Lynne found herself reduced to playing bit roles in Moon Over Miami in which she was a society girl. In A Yank in the RAF she was a nurse, and next played a receptionist in Sun Valley Serenade. The leads Lynne was handed included the westerns Riders of the Purple Sage opposite George Montgomery, Ride on Vaquero, and Romance of the Rio Grande, both of which starred Cesar Romero. The three films provided vacuous ingenue parts, although the latter film did give Lynne a rare chance to sing on screen.

On April 6, 1942, Lynne gave birth to a son, William Engelbert, III. After a hiatus of several months, Lynne returned to Fox to play in a murder mystery, The Man in the Trunk with George Holmes as her leading man, and Dr. Renault‚s Secret, a thriller in which she was pitted against monster ape man J. Carrol Naish and her mad scientist father, George Zucco, with Shepherd Strudwick as her romantic interest. She was also in the superior mystery Quiet Please, Murder, in which she played a librarian helping reporter Richard Denning track down Nazi spies George Sanders and Gail Patrick and their cohorts.

Lynne was tested for a part in The Song of Bernadette but was not cast in the film. Lynne‚s contract with Twentieth Century-Fox concluded with a 40-minute featurette, Three Sisters of the Moors in 1943. The story dealt with the lives of the three Bronte sisters. Heather Angel played Charlotte, Molly Lamont was Emily, and Lynne was the youngest, Anne. The film was designed to be shown as an advance introduction to the studio‚s major film of 1944, the picturization of Charlotte Bronte‚s Jane Eyre directed by Robert Stevenson. Although Three Sisters of the Moors was seen briefly in theaters, it was withdrawn from distribution after Warner Bros. sought an injunction to halt its exhibition. Warners had completed their own film of the story of the Bronte sisters titled Devotion in late 1942 and feared comparison with the Fox film. Courts agreed with Warners, and the film has remained unseen since its brief showing in 1943. Oddly, due to star Olivia de Havilland‚s contract dispute with Warner Bros., Devotion was not released to the public until 1946.

Freelancing Lynne played second lead to Janis Carter at Columbia in The Ghost That Walks Alone, a comedy starring Arthur Lake, better known as Dagwood Bumstead in the Blondie series of comedies.

Lynne next moved to Republic where she played the good girl to Stephanie Bachelor‚s very bad girl in Port of Forty Thieves. She stayed at Republic for My Buddy, a superior "B" film which Variety said was Republic‚s "sleeper" of 1944 with Lynne "effective" in her part. The star was Donald Barry as a war veteran who returns to civilian life, cannot get a job, and drifts into crime. Lynne was his girlfriend.

Republic liked the new more sophisticated Lynne and signed her to a long-term contract on September 27, 1944.

All was not well in Lynne‚s marital life, and she divorced William Englebert, Jr., on December 14, 1944. Two days later, on December 16, she rushed into marriage with Louis John Gardella, an assistant to Republic president Herbert J. Yates. Gardella had been a high government official at the War Production Board before his engagement at Republic.

Lynne‚s first film under contract was The Big Bonanza, followed in 1945 by the leading feminine part, as a farm girl braving life in the metropolis, in Behind City Lights. Peter Cookson played opposite. In Girls of the Big House she was a girl framed for murder, and in The Chicago Kid she was a girl who falls in love with a gangster, played by Donald Barry.

Lynne took time off in 1946 to do some radio and stage work in the Los Angeles area. Her two film releases that year were Sioux City Sue in which she was co-starred with Gene Autry in his first movie after his return from wartime service. She played a film talent scout out to sign Autry for her studio. In The Magnificent Rogue she was starred with Warren Douglas. In this, probably the best of all her Republic films, Lynne, beautifully gowned and photographed, played a housewife who, during the war, builds herself an advertising business. When her husband returns from the service after war‚s end, he expects her to return to domesticity. An early example of a woman‚s liberation film, it was diverting and popular at the box office.

Although Lynn managed to avoid playing in westerns prior to Sioux City Sue since her return to Republic in 1944, she was now cast in four, Saddle Pals and Robin Hood of Texas with Gene Autry, Eyes of Texas with her old co-star Roy Rogers, and The Timber Trail, which paired her with Monte Hale.

There were one or two better parts, that of a criminal who goes straight after a religious experience in Madonna of the Desert, Secret Service Investigator as a treasury agent, and Lightnin‚ in the Forest as a girl who craves excitement and gets more than she bargained for when she meets Warren Douglas.

By 1948 Lynne felt she had had enough of the studio system and decided not to renew her Republic contract which expired on March 26, 1948. She elected to freelance and announced in a press release that she had taken a role in Trouble Preferred at Twentieth Century-Fox. The part was that of a student policewoman. To help her make the part authentic she was taking a course at the Los Angeles Police Academy and was also learning judo. When the film was released in January 1949, Variety said, "The script projects a comedy slant to the doings, and the two comely leads, Peggy Knudsen and Lynne Roberts, romp for plenty of friendly chuckles."

Unfortunately, this did not lead to better parts. She was way down the cast list as a secretary in George Raft‚s A Dangerous Profession. She had her first bad girl part in Monogram‚s 1950 release Call of the Klondike. In this film she and Tom Neal as brother and sister engage in murder while operating a phony gold mine. They are brought to justice by stalwart mountie Kirby Grant and his dog Chinook.

In 1951 Lynne sued her husband Louis J. Gardella for divorce. However, on May 25, 1951, court commissioner Clarence E. Johns announced that the alimony awarded the actress by a preliminary court was withdrawn because Lynne and Gardella were not legally married. Documents were presented indicating Lynne‚s divorce from first husband William E. Englebert was not final when she went through a marriage ceremony with Gardella in Arizona in December 1944.

Lynne insisted she thought her divorce was complete. She stated she had received her divorce in Chihuahua, Mexico on December 14, 1944, and for good measure had picked up a second quickie divorce in Juarez, when the couple were on their way to Salome, Arizona for their marriage.

However, the couple were reconciled and presumably tied the knot legally. The reconciliation did not last, and Lynne was back in court again on January 11, 1952, seeking divorce. She stated "during 6 ł years of marriage, I worked four years to support the household. Having left Republic, Mr. Gardella refused to work unless he could find a job suitable to his talents." She went on, "He embarrassed me in front of my employers, friends, and my family. He was very surprised that anyone would hire me. He‚d call me dumb and a ... őGarbo‚ and didn‚t think I had the ability or was capable of working. He also told me if it were not for my nine-year-old son, whom he called a őbrat‚ we would not have any trouble."

The divorce was granted, and Gardella, by then producing agent for Hughes Aircraft Company, was ordered to pay alimony. Community property included ten Kerry blue terrier dogs valued at $1,500, two autos and a home in Van Nuys. The assets were divided between the couple.

During 1951 Lynne made her television debut appearing on the Hollywood Opening Night series in a dramatic play titled Pretty Boy. Subsequently, she was to appear regularly on television through 1953 as guest star on such dramatic shows as Fireside Theater, Stars Over Hollywood, Schaefer Century Theater, and Electric Playhouse. She also had a continuing role in the detective series The Cases of Eddie Drake in 1952 with Don Haggerty in the title part. When Patricia Morison left the series, Lynne took over the role of psychiatrist Dr. Joan Wright who assists Haggerty in his detection work. Four episodes of this series with Haggerty and Lynne were spliced together to make two feature films for showing in Europe as second features. The titles were Pattern For Murder and Murder Ad-Lib seen in England in 1953.

On June 6, 1953, Lynne entered her third marriage, this time to manufacturing executive, Hyman Samuels. The ceremony took place at Ontario, California. At her husband‚s request shortly after her marriage, Lynne retired from acting.

Lynne gave birth to a daughter, Peri Margaret, in 1955, and her husband formally adopted her son Bill, then aged 13, from the actress‚s first marriage. Lynne devoted her time to her husband and her children. Press releases said Lynne was very domestic and liked to cook and keep house. Her specialty was Italian food, but she herself often had to diet to keep from gaining weight, and would resist indulging in the dishes she prepared for her husband and friends. She mothered stray animals and still bred Kerry blue terriers, often showing them at competitions. She liked outdoor activities and loved to play baseball with her son.

It therefore was probably a surprise to newspaper readers when, on August 4, 1958, the Los Angeles Examiner reported that the blonde former movie actress was granted a divorce, on the grounds of cruelty, from Hyman B. Samuels, described as a brassiere manufacturer. She was awarded custody of the two children, $550 a month alimony and child support and sole occupancy of their home at 13129 Bloomfield Street in Sherman Oaks. Samuels was also ordered to make mortgage payments on the house and pay for lawn, garden, and pool maintenance.

However, the couple reconciled, but only briefly. On November 14, 1961, Lynne once again was in court seeking her freedom. She said, Mr. Samuels, when watching her old movies on television, would make fun of her acting and then fall asleep in front of the set. She was granted her divorce.

Lynne sold the Bloomfield Street house and bought a house nearby at 14667 Valley Vista Drive. She devoted all her time to her children. At 35 she rejected suggestions she resume her career saying, "I can‚t go back. One can‚t be a mother one day and an actress the next. It is out of the question."

Lynne married once again in 1971, this time to former pro wrestler Don Sebastian. Tragically, on December 16, 1977, Lynne fell in the bathroom of her home, striking her head on the tiles. She suffered fractures and lacerations and soon lapsed into a coma. Lynne lingered in this state for three and a half months. She died at 4 PM on April 1, 1978, at the Los Angeles USC Medical center, of respiratory failure due to an intercranial hemorrhage. She had never regained consciousness.

Although still married to Don Sebastian, the couple were legally separated at the time of Lynne‚s death. Lynne was buried alongside her mother at Forest Lawn Memorial Park on April 4, 1978. Surviving were her son, daughter and brother.

It is obvious that Lynne Roberts was pushed into an acting career at a very early age by an over ambitious mother. Her own comments on acting confirm that she lacked the driving ambitions of the more famous film stars. That she was confused in many ways is also obvious by her dismal marital record. Yet, she was a lovely, talented actress who could have gone much further on screen had she set her mind to it.
