Personal Quote:

[on Skull and Crown (1935)] I didn't like the film, but I loved that dog, Rin Tin Tin Jr.. He was so beautiful. And I did enjoy making the movie; I had fun. I didn't have a steady agent, and you gotta have a good agent working for you. To me, it was all fun and games. See more »


In the late 1930s and early 1940s, Lois was working in nightclubs and such Broadway musicals as "Yokel Boy" (1939) and "High Kickers" (1941). See more »
