Martha O'Driscoll was another of the starlets of yesteryear who married well and abandoned her acting career. Jane Randolph is another such actress who comes readily to mind. Both O'Driscoll and Randolph are probably best remembered for acting opposite Abbott & Costello and appearing in Universal horror films: O'Driscoll was in "House of Dracula" and Randolph was in the succeeding film, something of an indirect sequel "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein."
O'Driscoll raised horses while Randolph (who did some fine work for Val Lewton also) moved to Europe.
O'Driscoll was entombed in a cemetery mausoleum about one mile from where I am typing.
In my opinion, both were good performers who never reached the A-List and made do with programmers.
