Gloria DeHaven, who starred in classic movie musicals in the 1940s and ’50s — mostly for MGM, has died. She was 91.

The actress died Saturday in hospice care in Las Vegas, after suffering a stroke several months ago, her agent told Reuters.

“With Gloria DeHaven’s passing, we have lost another precious link to the classical cinema of yesteryear. Gloria was a talented actor and singer, and she will be sorely missed,” said SAG-aftra President Gabrielle Carteris.

DeHaven, who’s career spanned six decades, embodied Hollywood’s Golden Age with her spunk and charisma.

She made her big-screen debut as a child, playing Paulette Goddard’s younger sister, in Charlie Chaplin’s last silent movie, 1936’s “Modern Times.” DeHaven starred in more than two dozen films, including her breakout role in Lucille Ball’s “Best Foot Forward” (1943); “Two Girls and a Sailor” (1944) with Van Johnson, June Allyson, and Jimmy Durante; “Step Lively” (1944) with Frank Sinatra, giving »

Gloria DeHaven obituary

1 August 2016 6:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Popular singer and actor who performed in many of Hollywood’s most glamorous musicals of the 1940s and 50s

Gloria DeHaven, who has died aged 91, was a cherished but minor member of a glittering roster that made the MGM musical into one of the glories of Hollywood in the 1940s and 50s. Attractive, with a pleasant singing voice, DeHaven remained the studio’s favourite ingenue for more than a decade, almost her entire screen career.

Besides being frequently called upon to play the star’s sister, DeHaven had the distinction of being the first woman to kiss Frank Sinatra on screen which, according to one critic, “sent thousands of bobbysoxers into swoons”. It happened in Step Lively (1944), where DeHaven played a showgirl who falls for Sinatra’s shy singer-playwright.

In 'Judy by the Numbers' Anne Marie looks back at Garland's career through key songs

By the time Judy Garland turned 28, her entire adult life and her entire star persona had been a product of MGM. In 1950, Judy Garland's image - as cultivated by MGM and the Freed Unit - was of an exuberant talent, small in stature but big in heart and voice; a buoyant box office sensation. However, the reality was different. In the 13 months between the release of In The Good Old Summertime and Summer Stock, Judy Garland fought drug addiction, rehab, an increasingly strained marriage, an unsympathetic studio, and a suicide attempt that made headlines worldwide. Filmed before her attempt but released two months after it, Summer Stock is a record of the conflict between the image of Judy Garland and the reality of Frances Gumm.

The Movie: Summer Stock (1950)
