Beginning her career as a dancer and actress on-stage and in films, June Gale went on to become a popular daytime television hostess in Los Angeles during the 1950s. Most famous was her on-air rivalry with her husband (who also hosted his own show), pianist/humorist Oscar Levant. Gale launched her career as part of the dancing Gale Quadruplets (actually two sets of twins). The act was popular in vaudeville during the '20s and made it to Broadway. Gale moved to Los Angeles at age 19 and soon after signed with Fox Studios. Gale made her film debut around 1934 and subsequently appeared in such light fare as Pigskin Parade (1936) and Pardon Our Nerve (1939). She met Oscar Levant while touring in a production of Stage Door. Gale married him in 1939 and they remained together until Levant's death in 1972. During the early '50s, Gale became well-known for her devotion to Levant as she helped him recover from a heart attack and a subsequent addiction to prescription drugs. In 1956, Levant and Gale co-hosted The Oscar Levant Show. They were quite popular until they had an on-air disagreement. Gale then received her own show (on the same L.A. station). Both were nominated for local Emmys in 1960. After joining the Actor's Studio in the early '60s, Gale launched a small theatrical career. In 1962, Gale appeared in an episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. Gale passed away on November 13, 1996.
