Gloria DeHaven never made it to the front ranks of film stardom and none of her credits can be considered a major classic, but she was in her own modest way one of the signature perky soubrettes of the 1940s, a hometown sweetheart for many GIs. A good singer and a highly vivacious screen presence, her career has had its ups and downs, but TV and stage work and the very occasional film have nonetheless kept her busy for over half a century.
b. 23 July 1924, Los Angeles, California, USA. An accomplished actress and singer, with a fine voice and style and a glamorous personality who appeared in several movie musicals in the 40s and 50s. Her parents were the popular stage entertainers the Carter De Havens, and Gloria entered showbusiness while she was quite young. In the early 40s she sang with acclaimed dance bands led by names such as Jan Savitt, and was employed as an extra in the Charlie Chaplin films Modern Times and The Great Dictator. After playing some bit parts, she signed to MGM and made her first impression in Best Foot Forward (1943), and, in the same year, took part in the all-star extravaganza Thousands Cheer. During the rest of the 40s she had mostly good roles in musicals such as Broadway Rhythm, Two Girls And A Sailor, Step Lively, Summer Holiday, and Yes Sir That’s My Baby (1949), as well as playing several solely dramatic parts. In 1950 Gloria De Haven portrayed her mother and sang ‘Who’s Sorry Now’ in the biopic of songwriters Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby, and followed that with appearances in Summer Stock, I’ll Get By, Two Tickets To Broadway, Down Among The Sheltering Palms, So This Is Paris, and The Girl Rush (1955).
