Rambeau, Marjorie

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Longtime character actress, nominated for Oscars as best supporting actress for The Primrose Path in 1940 and Torch Song in 1953, Rambeau was often cast as blowsy aging harlots and fallen women. In their biography of Ted Geisel, Judith & Neil Morgan identify Rambeau as the voice of Anopheles Ann, described in Beck and Friedwald as “a haggard old malarial mosquito,” hence the casting, most likely, in the Private Snafu cartoon It’s Murder She Says (Jones, 1945).
