Moore was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marvelton Moore.[1]

Moore's first professional work had her singing to accompany silent films. She then toured England and South Africa entertaining with a partner. After she returned to the United States, she performed in road companies of plays, including Street Scene. Just before she could make a screen test for Paramount Pictures, her mother became sick, causing Moore to return to Columbus, Ohio, where she ran a restaurant for her mother and acted in amateur productions. She returned to Hollywood after her mother died.[2] She also worked on television programs, including a 1958 episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents titled "Bull in a China Shop".
