Stage & Silent Screen Actress Fay Webb 1936 Woodlawn Cemetery

Fay Webb ( Octobeer 21, 1907 - November 18, 1936) was a stage and silent screen actress. Born in Santa Monica, she was married to actor-singer Rudy Vallee during the 1930s. 

Fay Webb worked for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures Corporation in the late 1920s. She met bandleader Rudy Vallee while he was making The Vagabond Lover (1929). They were married in 1931, but separated less than two years later.

During divorce proceedings, Fay Webb alleged, "Vallee is possessed of a violent, vicious and ungovernable temper, and given to the use of blasphemy and the use of intemperate, vile and vituperative language, particularly when applied to [her]." She accused him of committing adultery with three women, including actress Alice Faye. Vallée denied the allegations and the judge found Vallée "not guilty of any misconduct or maltreatment of [Webb] which detrimentally affected [her] health, physical or medical condition."

Fay Webb died of peritonitis contracted after abdominal surgery in Santa Monica, California on November 18, 1936. She is buried at Woodlawn Cemetery in Santa Monica, California.
