Early years

Cunningham started her working life as a switchboard operator in a commerce bank and did some sittings as a photographer's model.[citation needed] Her early experience in music came as a member of the choir in the Fifth Baptist Church in St. Louis.[2]

Cunningham's first show business job was in the chorus line of Mlle. Modiste at the age of 18. She trained as a singer and appeared in opera. She worked as a vaudeville comedian at the Palace Theatre in New York City until the commencement of her movie career in 1929.

A. L. Erlanger selected her for the title role in the original production of The Pink Lady.[2]

Cunningham's Broadway credits include Somewhere Else (1913), Iolanthe (1913), Oh, I Say! (1913), Maids of Athens (1914), Dancing Around (1914), Greenwich Village Follies (1919), The Rose of China (1919), and Dance With Your Gods (1934).[3] She also performed in Paris with the Boston Grand Opera Company, singing in Italian operas.[4]

Cunningham was a Hollywood character actress with whitish hair cut like a man's, often in roles as a general "know-it-all".[1] She made more than 80 appearances in movies between 1929 and 1946, many of them uncredited.[citation needed]

Personal life

Cunningham was married to writer Jean C. Havez from 1915 to 1917.[1]


On April 17, 1959, Cunningham died of heart disease at the Motion Picture Country Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. She was 70 years old. Her remains are interred in Chapel of the Pines Crematory.[1]
