Personal Quote:

I think those who've employed me have also enjoyed me. I like people and always go out of my way to get along with everyone. And I don't seem to threaten anyone - even the glamor girls, and they're the toughest to please. See more »


Treen performed onstage in vaudeville and musicals before switching to film in the 1930s
