A Paramount starlet in the early '40s under the name of Judith Gibson, beautiful brunette Teala Loring (born Marcia Griffin) changed her moniker in order not to be confused with fellow contract actress Julie Gibson, choosing "Teala," she later stated, because it was "a good Irish name," and "Loring" from her mother's side of the family. After playing bits in well-known films such as Holiday Inn (1942) and Double Indemnity (1944), Loring co-starred in scores of low-budget efforts that included Return of the Ape Man (1944) starring the triple threat of Bela Lugosi, John Carradine, and George Zucco; Edgar G. Ulmer's memorable Bluebeard (1944) featuring Loring as Francine, the doomed undercover police operative; Bowery Bombshell (1946) with the Bowery Boys; and Arizona Cowboy (1950), the screen debut of Rex Allen and Loring's final film. Three of Teala Loring's four siblings, Debra Paget, Lisa Gaye, and Ruell Shayne, enjoyed various degrees of success in pictures.
