Madge Bellamy (June 30, 1899 – January 24, 1990) was an American stage and film actress. She was a popular leading lady in the 1920s and early 1930s. Her career declined in the sound era, and ended following a romantic scandal in the 1940s.

Early life

Bellamy was born Margaret Derden Philpott in Hillsboro, Texas in 1899[1][2] to William Bledsoe and Annie Margaret (née Derden) Philpott. Bellamy was raised in San Antonio, Texas until she was 6 years old, and the family later moved to Brownwood, Texas, where her father worked as an English professor at Texas A&M University.[3] The Philpotts later moved to Denver, Colorado.[4]

As a child, she took dancing lessons and soon began to aspire to become a stage performer. She made her stage debut dancing in a local production of Aida, at the age of 9.[5]
