Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

June MacCloy (June 2, 1909 – May 5, 2005) was an American actress and singer in the 1930s and 1940s.

Born in Sturgis, Michigan, MacCloy moved to Toledo, Ohio as a child. Signed by Paramount Pictures in 1930, she was loaned out to United Artists for her first feature, Reaching for the Moon (film) (1931), starring Bebe Daniels, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., Edward Everett Horton and Claud Allister. She plays 'Kitty,' Bebe Daniels' flirtatious best friend. The director, Edmund Goulding, was casting another Fairbanks film when he heard about MacCloy and wired her to come and test. Her first Paramount film was June Moon (released March 21, 1931), based on the play by George S. Kaufman and Ring Lardner.

Subsequently, MacCloy appeared in a variety of shorts and some features with stars such as Jack Oakie, Frances Dee and ZaSu Pitts. With co-stars Gertrude Short and Marion Shilling, she made a series of shorts for RKO-Pathé called The Gay Girls. One of her directors was the then disgraced Fatty Arbuckle. She co-starred with Leon Errol in the second full Technicolor film Good Morning, Eve! (1934), released just after another Leon Errol short Service With a Smile (1934).

MacCloy is probably best remembered today for her last major film role in Go West (1940), starring the Marx Brothers.
