Personal Quote:

[on her South of the Border (1939) co-stars] [Gene Autry] became a top ten box office star. That picture made a lot of money! Gene was a lovely cowboy. A lovely person, such a gentleman. Smiley [Smiley Burnette], his sidekick, was always nice. I particularly remember the little girl, Mary Lee - such a talent, and the other leading lady, June Storey, who was very pretty. See more »

Trivia:

She and her daughter Susan Kohner both starred in films that the Library of Congress selected for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2015: Tovar in Drácula (1931) and Kohner in Imitation of Life (1959). See more »
