Gilda (Shirley Jean Rickert): as scanned from Hollywood Confidential Vol. 1 No. 2
Shirley Jean Rickert briefly appeared in the Our Gang (Little Rascals) comedies as the ‘blonde girl’ as shown on the right. Later she would go on to work as a chorus line dancer in many Hollywood films, including Singing in the Rain. In the early 1950s, when large productions musicals fell out of favor in Hollywood, she began dancing in burlesque billing herself as Gilda & Her Crowning Glory (referring to her lovely long, blonde hair).
