Later she joined the chorus of Piccadilly Revels and continued on the stage when she went to the United States of America. She began her film career in the 1929 film Number More Children. Between 1929 and 1931 she starred in nine films, most notably the 1931 western Rider of the Plains opposite Tom Tyler. In 1932 she was named a WAMPAS Baby Star, alongside future Hollywood legends Gloria Stuart and Ginger Rogers.
From 1932 to 1953, she would have roles in 39 films, some of which were uncredited, with others having her in the lead heroine role.
Bond played Gladys DuCane in The Old Dark House, a chorus girl who falls in love with Roger Penderel (played by Melvyn Douglas). Possibly her best-known film role was in the 1940 film The Westerner, in which she played Lillie Langtry.
By the 1950s her career had declined, with her having mostly television series appearances. She retired from acting at the age of 50 in 1958.
Bond died in 1991, aged 83, from a heart attack in a care home in Reseda, California.
