Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004


    Leading lady and second lead in a number of Warner films of the 1940s and 1950s, including the infamous Jack Benny film The Horn Blows at Midnight. Katz notes her specialty was playing charming, resourceful, often cool and calculating leading ladies with aloof magnetism. One of the stars that Daffy Duck sees at the end of Hollywood Daffy (Freleng, 1946) as a result of getting clouted by a studio cop, is identified as Smith.
