She is occasionally mistaken for a British silent era film actress of the same name, active 1919–1922.

In April 1936 she sailed for the United States and Hollywood.
More DetailsHide DetailsAfter six months of unsuccessful effort, including a near fatal incident with a gas stove in her flat, she signed a contract with RKO, taking the leading female roles as Constance Worth, in China Passage and Windjammer. The change of name was related to her first role with established Hollywood actor Vinton Hayworth. After Windjammer, RKO offered her no more films.
Ken Hall claimed Howarth’s first screen test showed “light and shade, good diction, no accent and (that) she undoubtedly could act with no sign of the self-consciousness which almost always characterised the amateur.” In late 1933, Smith's Weekly raved enthusiastically about the young actress; "Young Joy Howarth who leapt into publicity when she became the Squatter's Daughter a few months ago, is just the big hit nowadays.”
