Barbara Weeks was an actress of the 1930s. Born in Somerville, Massachusetts, Weeks entered into acting through her participation in the Ziegfeld Follies. In 1931 she was named as one of fourteen girls selected as a "WAMPAS Baby Star", which launched her into a brief but successful acting career, mostly in cliffhanger serials and B-movie films and B-Westerns.
Eight of her films starred Tim McCoy, Buck Jones, Tom Tyler, and Charles Starrett. For a time she was married to B-Western actor Guinn "Big Boy" Williams. She left the film business in the late 1930s after she married Lockheed test pilot Lewis Parker in 1938. In 1945, after the end of World War II, Parker's plane disappeared over the North Atlantic, and he was never found.
