Anne Nagel

Anne Nagel (September 29, 1915 – July 6, 1966) was an American actress. She played in adventures, mysteries, and comedies for twenty-five years. She also appeared in television series in the 1950s. Born Anne Dolan in Boston, Massachusetts, Nagel was enrolled by her parents in a religious preparatory school with the expectation she would become a nun. But part-time work in her teens as a photographer's model and membership in a Boston theater company turned her away from religious life. Meantime Nagel's mother had divorced and remarried. When Nagel's new stepfather, a Technicolor expert, was hired by Tiffany Studios in Hollywood, he moved the family to California where he employed his stepdaughter in several experimental Technicolor shorts he'd been asked to direct. Placed under contract by Warner Brothers in 1932, Nagel secured a bit part as a ballet girl in Hypnotized and spent the next few years making uncredited appearances as a dancer or chorus girl. In 1936, she appeared in Here Comes Carter with Ross Alexander. A reviewer remarked of her performance, "she was just one of those girls who has learned to croon for the microphone, and let the rest of the world go hang.
