Maryon Aye's Story

Maryon Aye (sometimes credited as Marion Aye) was a promising star during the 1920s but her life ended in tragedy. She was born Maryon Eloise Aye on April 5, 1903 in Chicago, Illinois. Her father, James Aye Sr, was a wealthy attorney and her mother, Eloise, was a housewife. She had a younger brother named James. The family lived at 148 Gale Avenue in River Forest, Ilinois. They moved to Los Angeles, California in 1911. Maryon was discovered by Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle who helped her get a contract at Balboa Studios. She made several films with comedian Frank Kingsley. One month before her fifteenth birthday, on March 11, 1918, she eloped with Sherman William Plaskett. She lied on her marriage license and said she was eighteen. Sherman was a twenty-five year old cameraman and member of the Army's Signal Corps.
