Janis Paige


Born - 16 September 1922, Tacoma, Washington, USA
Died - 2 June 2024

Red-haired Hollywood (and Broadway) musical star with peppy personality and specular vocal range. Born Donna Tjaden, she needed a vehicle of her own to showcase her talents, but mostly played second fiddle to such stars as Dennis Morgan and Jack Carson during her seven years at Warners. A raging success on stage in The Pajama Game later, she didn't get the film part, but enjoyed some consolation with a plum role in the Fred Astaire musical Silk Stockings in 1957. Films include Bathing Beauty (1944), Her Kind of Man (1946), Royal Flush (1946), Cheyenne (1947), It's Magic (1948), One Sunday Afternoon (1948), The Younger Brothers (1949), This Side of the Law (1950), Two Gals and a Guy (1951), The House Across the Street (1951), Please Don't Eat the Daisies (1960), Bachelor in Paradise (1961), Follow the Boys (1963), Killer on a Horse/Welcome to Hard Times (1967) and Natural Causes (1994).
