  • Tall, outgoing American actress Janis Carter had initially planned to become a concert pianist, but switched her interests to opera while attending Western Reserve University. She worked steadily on Broadway in such musicals as DuBarry Was a Lady and Panama Hattie, the latter musical winning her a 20th Century-Fox contract. Curiously, Janis sang only in her first film, Cadet Girl. Thereafter, she was shunted off to comedy-relief and "other woman" roles. Her best screen performance was as the hard-boiled anti-heroine in the Columbia noir programmer Framed (1947). Janis Carter and the movie industry parted company in 1952, after which she focused her energies upon television; from 1954 through 1956, Janis and Bud Collyer co-hosted the daytime quiz show Feather Your Nest.
