The blonde "vamp" or "Little Rich Girl" of such Our Gang shorts as Helping Grandma (1931) or Bargain Day, Shirley Jean Rickert had won a beautiful baby contest in her native Seattle before making her screen debut opposite comedian Monte Collins in How's My Baby (1930). She followed her stint with the Gang with appearances opposite Mickey McGuire (later Mickey Rooney) and in subsequent years worked as a dancer/chorus girl in numerous MGM musicals, from Best Foot Forward (1943) to Singin' in the Rain (1952). When film musicals went out of fashion, Rickert toured America as a burlesque dancer or, as she herself acknowledges, "a striptease."
