Lycos Movies - Biography - Gloria DeHaven (814 words)
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.
DeHaven and her brother Carter DeHaven Jr (who later became a producer) traveled with their parents on tour tours while growing up, and Gloria enjoyed her first screen exposure in a bit part in Charlie Chaplin's "Modern Times" (1936), for which her father served as assistant director.
DeHaven stayed at MGM for two more years, alternating between blonde and brunette, standardized lead and cutesy second lead, in a series of unmemorable films ranging from melodrama ("Scene of the Crime" 1949) to comedy ("The Yellow Cab Man" 1950).
