Did You Know?


Diminutive bit player of the 1930s, one-time member of the Harry Blaney Stock Company in Brooklyn. The one performance which allowed her more screen time , as a stereotypical Negro maid in the 1932 comedy 'The First Year', gained a measure of notoriety with changing socio/political views, since the part was played by a white actress in blackface.
