Gloria Warren

Singer/actress

Born - 7 April 1926, Wilmington, Delaware, USA
Died - 11 September 2021

One of Hollywood's strangest stories: an attractive brunette with longish face and full lips, the performer, born Gloria Weiman of Hungarian heritage, was a teenage prodigy, as singer, dancer and pianist. She was signed amid fanfare at 16 by Warner Brothers to a seven-year contract, with the idea of showcasing her melodious soprano in musicals. But she made only one film for the studio, Always in My Heart (1942). The following year, she had the starring role in the RKO musical Cinderella Swings It. But war work intervened, and she was unable to revive her career in post-war times, making only three more films: Dangerous Money (1946), Don't Gamble With Strangers (1947) and Bells of San Fernando (1947). In 1948, she left show business to raise a family. Her husband Peter died in 2010 after 64 years of marriage.
