Gloria Jean

There she was, in the WC Fields' film, Never Give a Sucker an Even Break.

A rival of Deanna Durbin.

Cute as a button. Good strong voice. Good actress, too! About maybe 15 years old.

What a shock to read that she is now living in Hawaii, and 82 years old.

Never amounted to much in the movies, perhaps because Deanna Durban was threatened by her.

But the little girl in Never Give a Sucker will always be enchanting.
