      By 1939 McKay had moved into films after being given a contract by Paramount Pictures. Initially she made small uncredited appearances before going on to starring roles as a leading lady in many B Movies during the 1940s, working in particular at studios such as PRC and Monogram Pictures.[2] Film worked dried up for her in the 1950s, and she appeared on television and in a minor role in The Merry Widow (1952).
