Ann Sothern (January 22, 1909 – March 15, 2001) was an American stage, radio, film and television actress whose career spanned six decades. Sothern began her career in the late 1920s in bit parts in films. In 1930, she made her Broadway stage debut and soon worked her way up to starring roles. In 1939, MGM cast her as Maisie Ravier, a brash yet lovable Brooklyn showgirl. The character proved to be popular and spawned a successful film series (Congo Maisie, Gold Rush Maisie, Up Goes Maisie, etc.) and a network radio series (The Adventures of Maisie).

Sometimes I`ll watch an old movie on television and, once in a while, one of mine -- such as April Showers (1948) -- will come on and I`ll watch it. And you know something? I`m always amazed at what a lousy actress I was. I guess in the old days we just got by on glamor.
