Katherine DeMille was a Canadian-born actress from the 1930s to the 1950s. Some of her movies include: Charlie Chan at The Olympics, The Black Room, Romeo and Juliet, and The Crusades. She was the adopted daughter of Cecil B. DeMille. In 1937, she married Anthony Quinn, who was a pretty unknown actor at the time, and her father disapproved of the marriage, likely because Quinn was Mexican. She had five children with Quinn, and she only made a few movies in the 1940s. Quinn divorced DeMille in 1965 after he cheated on her with an Italian costume designer. DeMille never remarried, passing away from Alzheimer's disease in 1995 at the age of 83.
