    She was born in New York City to vaude­ville com­edy per­form­ers John Hyams, (1869-1940) and Leila (née McIn­tyre) Hyams (1882-1953). Both par­ents ap­peared in films and mother Leila Se­nior was also a noted stage per­former; her par­ents can later be seen to­gether in sev­eral Hol­ly­wood films such as in 1939's The House­keeper's Daugh­ter. Hyams ap­peared on stage with her par­ents while still a child, work­ing in their vaude­ville act for five years. As a teenager, she worked as a model and be­came well known across the United States after ap­pear­ing in a suc­cess­ful se­ries of news­pa­per ad­ver­tise­ments. This suc­cess led her to Hol­ly­wood.

    She made her first film in 1924, and with her blonde hair, green eyes, del­i­cate fea­tures, and good-na­tured de­meanor, was cast in a string of sup­port­ing roles, where she was re­quired to do very lit­tle but smile and look pretty. She proved her­self ca­pa­ble of han­dling the small roles she was as­signed, and over a pe­riod of time, she came to be taken se­ri­ously as an ac­tress. By 1928, she was play­ing star­ring roles, achiev­ing suc­cess in MGM's first talkie re­lease, Alias Jimmy Valen­tine (1928) op­po­site William Haines, Li­onel Bar­ry­more, and Karl Dane. The fol­low­ing year, she ap­peared in the pop­u­lar mur­der mys­tery The Thir­teenth Chair, a role that of­fered her the chance to dis­play her dra­matic abil­i­ties as a mur­der sus­pect. At Fox that same year, she ap­peared in di­rec­tor Allan Dwan's now lost ro­man­tic ad­ven­ture The Far Call op­po­site Charles Mor­ton. The qual­ity of her parts con­tin­ued to im­prove as the decade turned, in­clud­ing a role...

    Hyams mar­ried her agent Phil Berg in 1927. In 1936, after a 12-year act­ing ca­reer and per­form­ing in 50 films, she re­tired from the mo­tion-pic­ture in­dus­try; nev­er­the­less, she re­mained ac­tive in the Hol­ly­wood com­mu­nity for the rest of her life. In 1977, after a "brief ill­ness", Hyams died at age 72 at her home in Bel-Airin Los An­ge­les. She was sur­vived by her hus­band Phil.
