The only one I have come across and the only one I have ever seen with her credited by her birth name. Was only credited as Virginia Reid in two 1930s shorts. Born Virginia Reid Sampson, she appeared in 42 films between 1934 and 1953. Ingenue and then leading lady in US films from the mid-30s through late 40s, latterly in westerns. Her Hollywood career began around 1934 and she can be seen in films at RKO and as one of many starlets doing musicals as a Goldwyn Girl. In her early film work, she called herself Virginia Reid. By the late 1930s at MGM, she was billed as Lynne Carver and appeared in the Dr. Kildare series, A CHRISTMAS CAROL (1938), THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN (1939) with Mickey Rooney, more. She did a half dozen B westerns in the 1940s. There was a pair with Roy Rogers: SUNSET ON THE DESERT (Republic, 1942) and MAN FROM CHEYENNE (Republic, 1942). That was followed by a quartet with Johnny Mack Brown: LAW OF THE VALLEY (Monogram, 1944), FLAME OF THE WEST (Monogram, 1945), DRIFTING ALONG (Monogram, 1946) and CROSSED TRAILS (Monogram, 1948). In three of these half dozen, Carver wasn’t the heroine/leading lady. In MAN FROM CHEYENNE, Lynne is a baddie, working in cahoots with William Haade and a gang of rustlers. She’s a saloon gal in CROSSED TRAILS. And she’s background in FLAME OF THE WEST which has Joan Woodbury as the female lead. Supposedly, Carver has an unbilled/uncredited role in John Wayne’s IN OLD CALIFORNIA (Republic, 1942), but I’ve been unable to spot her in that film. Minor discoloration, minor silvering, minor corner and edge wear, bend. Radiant beauty queen, Goldwyn Girl and film actress Lynne Carver was memorable in films like Madame X (1937), The Bride Wore Red (1937), Young Dr. Kildare (1938), Everybody Sing (1938) with Judy Garland, A Christmas Carol (1938), The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1939), Calling Dr. Kildare (1939), Tennessee Johnson (1942), and The Human Comedy (1943) before her gradually declining health forced her to abandon acting. She died of cancer at the age of 38 and her autograph is extremely rare in any format. 1945Flame of the West. 1944Law of the Valley. Bonnie – Showgirl (uncredited). 1942Sunset on the Desert.
