A long-term Hal Roach contract actress, indomitable-looking Lyle Tayo was a foil to all of the Roach comics, including Laurel & Hardy (she was Hardy's wife in Their Purple Moment ) and the Our Gang kids. The Gang especially enjoyed her presence and she would mother them all at one time or another, in such comedies as Big Business ( Mickey's mother), Heebie Jeebies ( Joe's mother), Shivering Shakespeare ( Chubby's mother), and Dogs Is Dogs ( Wheezer's aunt, for a change). Tayo, who sometimes billed herself Lyle Barton, left Roach in 1934, but continued to appear in bit parts until at least 1948, including one in The Yellow Rose of Texas (1944), a Roy Rogers oater in which she played one of the townswomen.
