Lillian Bond

1908 - 1991


  1. Biography

    I was sad to see that there is no written memory for Lilian Bond, so I compiled some fact so they could be added. Lilian Bond was a British film actress of the late 1920s through the 1940s, with most of her films being B-movies. Born in London, England, began her acting career in the 1929 film “No More Children”. Between 1929 and 1931 she starred in nine films, most notably the 1931 western “Rider of the Plains” opposite Tom Tyler. In 1932 she was one of 14 girls selected as “WAMPAS Baby Stars”, alongside future Hollywood legends Gloria Stuart and Ginger Rogers.
    From 1932 to 1953 she would have roles in 39 films, some of which were uncredited, with others having her in the lead heroine role. Probably her best known film role was in the 1940 film “The Westerner”, in which she played legendary stage actress Lillie Langtry, and which starred Gary Cooper, Walter Brennan, and Doris Davenport. By the 1950s her career had slowed, with her having mostly television series appearances. She retired from acting in 1958.
    Married three times. After her 2nd marrage ended in 1944. Lilian later married Michael Fessier, a successful screen writer and producer. The two remained married until his death in 1988. She died on January 25 1991, of a heart attack, in Reseda, California. Lilian Bond also had a role in “The Old Dark House” (1932) produced by Carl Laemmle Jr. Bond played as “Gladys DuCane”, a chorus girl who falls in love with Roger Penderel (played by Melvyn Douglas).
