She had parents that supported her desire to pursue acting. At the age of 15, she became a stage performer. After several good performances, she drew the attention of film producers, and obtained a role in the film Broadway Nights. Paramount became a regular for her movies as she acted in The Different Eyes, Five Minutes from the Station, and City Streets. That movie made her a star. 

Later she had roles in 1935’s Fugitive, Accent on Youth, and in 1938, she did You and Me. 

In her later years Sylvia had roles in Beetlejuice and Mars Attacks, which was her last film.

She wrote two books on needlepoint, had 1 son, and married three times.

In addition to starring in sad roles or dramatic pictures, Sylvia also worked with Hitchcock on the movie Sabotage. 

Pursuing an acting career not only fulfilled her dreams, it also mattered that her roles were in quality productions.
