Gloria DeHaven was the daughter of the popular "polite comedy" stage-and-film team of Mr. and Mrs. Carter DeHaven. DeHaven made her screen debut as one of Paulette Goddard's younger sisters in Charles Chaplin's Modern Times, on which her father was assistant director. In her teen years, DeHaven secured work as a band vocalist, which led to singing parts in such film musicals as Best Foot Forward (1943), Step Lively (1944) and Summer Holiday (1948). Under contract to MGM from 1940 to 1950, the vivacious and talented DeHaven was the studio's all-purpose ingenue, acting opposite everyone from William Powell to Red Skelton. She later starred in a series of Technicolor musicals at 20th Century-Fox. When musicals fell out of public favor, DeHaven's film career waned and she turned her energies to performing in nightclubs, summer-stock and on the TV-guest-star circuit. During the 1970s and 1980s, she made cameo appearances in a few films; later she was also seen on a semi-regular basis on the TV series Ryan's Hope, Nakia and Murder She Wrote. In 1997, DeHaven returned to feature films with a co-starring role opposite Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon and Dyan Cannon in Martha Coolidge's Out to Sea. She died in 2016, at age 91.
