For the character in The Brady Bunch seen in the middle of the 9 intro subscreens, see Alice Nelson.
Alice Brady (born Mary Rose Brady, November 2, 1892 – October 28, 1939) was an American actress who began her career in the silent film era and survived the transition into talkies. She worked until six months before her death from cancer in 1939. Her films include My Man Godfrey (1936), in which she played the flighty mother of Carole Lombard's character, and In Old Chicago (1937) for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
In 1960, Brady was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6201 Hollywood Blvd. for her contribution to motion pictures, making her one of fewer than a hundred Oscar-winning female actors in Hollywood history to receive a star.
