Did You Know?


Supporting actress in B-movies of the 1930s and 40s. A former model, she usually played dumb sidekicks of the heroine. Had one starring role in 'Carnival Queen' (1937) as the owner of a travelling show on the (undercover) trail of crooks, but her high-pitched voice and dizzy blonde persona quickly prompted her return to lower-billed parts.
