The daughter of British actress Irene Riano, young Renie Riano headlined in music halls and vaudeville as "Baby Irene." As an adult, Riano's unusual appearance assured her steady work as a character comedienne. She was featured in several Broadway productions, notably Irving Berlin's Music Box Revue, before entering films in 1937. Amidst dozens of cameos and bits, she played the recurring role of sardonic maidservant Effie Schneider in Warner Bros.' Nancy Drew series, and starred as Maggie opposite Joe Yule Sr.'s Jiggs in a late-'40s Monogram series based on the comic strip Bringing up Father. Active until 1966, Renie Riano's later assignments included a frantic maid in the American-International musicomedy Pajama Party (1964) and an amorous ghost in a first-season episode of TV's Green Acres.
