Marjorie Main (AKA Mary Tomlinson) Born 1890 in Acton, IN. Died 1975. Main began playing upper class dowagers, but was ultimately typecast in abrasive, domineering, salty roles, for which her distinct voice was well suited. Perhaps her most famous role is that of "Ma Kettle", which she first played in The Egg and I in 1947 opposite Percy Kilbride as "Pa Kettle" - portrayed the character in nine more Ma and Pa Kettle films.
