Trivia:

Ironically, in one of her final performances, The Crime Doctor's Strangest Case (1943), she played the wife of a man who habitually started accidental fires with carelessly discarded smoking materials. Two such scenes were featured in the movie. It was just two short years later she died in a house fire suspected to have been caused by a carelessly discarded cigarette. See more »
