Oh, that face, that fabulous face. Whose is it?


Recommended Posts

Here's a fellow who was a child actor in the 1930's. He gave up movie acting for the decade of the forties, although he did work in radio. He worked sporadically in TV in the fifties and sixties, before becoming a regular for many years on a TV soap opera. He has been seen on TCM. Do you know him?

Yes, it's Leon Janney. He starred in "Penrod And Sam" in the thirties. From the late sixties to the late seventies, he was a regular on "The Edge Of Night". In the late sixties, following the success of "Batman" on TV, the show's producers tried to sell a Dick Tracy series to the network. A pilot film was made, but did not sell. Leon, seen in makeup in this photo, was to play famous villain, Flattop. A pretty good makeup job, don't you think?

Eve Plumb was to be in the series if it sold. This was a couple of years before "The Brady Bunch". Here is that pilot. You'll see Eve in the credits, but she does not appear in the story.

Now, do you know this cute young fellow with lots of curly hair? He was in some "Our Gang" comedies before doing more dramatic roles. He is pictured with Spanky and Pete the pup here.

Yes, Twinkeee got him. Wally Albrighrt was also in "The Grapes Of Wrath" in 1940, but by the time he was thirty, his acting career was over.

Now here is an actress who started at a very young age, as you can see here.

A few years later she looked like this.

As an adult, she looked like this.

ANNE SHIRLEY- (Dawn Evelyen Paris)..she legally changed her name at 16 when she took on the role of Anne Shirley in:

 

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES (1934) , based on the Canadian Author's book by Lucy Maud Montgomery, which took place in Prince Edward Island, Canada. The House of Anne of Green Gables still stands to-day and is a Major tourist attraction in P.E.I., Canada.

The center photo depicts Anne Shirley (the character) as she was noted for her pigtails, the only thing missing is the Straw Hat she always wore !

 

Anne Shirley also starred in many other movies, most notable as Barbara Stanwick's daughter in STELLA DALLAS (1937), also opposite Dick Powell in MURDER, MY SWEET (1944)

I'd have answered this one earlier, but the internet was frozen up and I couldn't get through.

 

 

But I will add one thing you didn't mention: the name she used before changing it to Anne Shirley: Dawn O'Day. Although I've never heard it confirmed for sure, I believe one reason she changed her acting name from Dawn O'Day could have been to avoid confusion with another actress working at the same time, also named Dawn O'Day. Although this other Dawn was a singer/dancer and was working in east-coast films such as Vitaphone shorts, there still must have been some confusion over the two young ladies with the same name. I do know there have been authors and researchers in recent years who don't seem to realize the difference and have mixed up their credits.

Yes, you did, Twink, and I commend you for it, but as I said in the other thread, the more discussion and dialogue we generate, the more everyone learns about the subjects. I did not know about the singer/dancer named Dawn O'Day. Thanks, MN. By the way, when do you people ever sleep?

Gotta say, the name "Dawn O'Day" sounds suspiciously like a name a young woman NOW might take as she's beginning a "career" in a certain movie genre with roots in the San Fernando Valley!!!

 

(...sorry, couldn't resist!) ;)

=================================

 

 

 

 

 

Although she was very attractive and talented she didn't have much of a film career. Since her only films were east-coast productions she was probably someone who had more of a career on Broadway or in New York shows. She can be seen in two Vitaphone shorts that turn up on TCM occasionally, both starring Hal LeRoy: PICTURE PALACE (1934) and PRIVATE LESSONS (1934). She and Hal make a great team. I really wish she had made more films.

 

 

I mentioned earlier that some sources still get the two Dawn O'Days mixed up, and sure enough a quick look on IMDb shows that they cluelessly have dancer Dawn's credits mixed in with actress Dawn's. In fact they don't even have a listing at all for dancer Dawn O'Day. Someone able to do so needs to go in there and fix that! As popular as Dawn (Anne Shirley) is, the other Dawn definitely deserves to be recognized, remembered and to have her own IMDb listing.

Do you know this actress? She was sometimes a leading lady and sometimes the "other woman" in quite a few films of the thirties and forties. In her middle age, she appeared in a sixties film with Doris Day.
