Shirley Jean Rickert's last role. She started as a child actress in several films including the Our Gang movies. After leaving the movie business as an adult, she became an exotic dancer, billed as Gilda and Her Crowning Glory (after her long blonde hair). In a 1955 interview, she said "People are so amazed to hear I went from movies into burlesque. Well, I'll tell you, I prefer burlesque because it's not as immoral as the movie business."
