In vaudeville with her parents' act from the age of 3, Mitzi Green rose to popularity in a series of Paramount films in the early talkie era. Sometimes cast in such conventional juvenile parts as Becky Thatcher in Tom Sawyer (1930) and Huckleberry Finn (1931), Green was given more scope in musicals and comedies in which she regaled audiences with her dead-on impressions of such celebrities as Greta Garbo and George Arliss. Maturing rather quickly, 14-year-old Green was seen in a grownup soubrette role in Transatlantic Merry-Go-Round (1934), the film that closed out the first stage of her Hollywood career. She went on to Broadway, where she starred in the original production of Lorenz and Hart's Babes in Arms. Green made one more film in 1940, then went back to stage and nightclub work, reemerging on the big screen opposite Abbott and Costello in Lost in Alaska (1951) and Mitzi Gaynor in Bloodhounds of Broadway (1952). In 1955, Green co-starred with Virginia Gibson and Gordon Jones in the slapstick sitcom So This is Hollywood (1955), in which she played a hoydenish stuntwoman. Long retired, Mitzi Green died of cancer at the age of 48; she was survived by her husband, film director Joseph Pevney.
