A sad end

Just watched her playing Mina in Dracula (1931). I never knew this;

By the late 1930s she was battling alcoholism and her acting career declined. She was hospitalized several times but was unable to gain control over her life. In 1950, Chandler was severely burned in an apartment fire, caused by her falling asleep while smoking. She survived but her body was badly disfigured. Her alcoholism continued unabated after the accident.

Chandler died on April 30, 1965, following surgery in Hollywood, California and was cremated according to her wishes.

She was just 59 when she died.
