Adele Jergens Facts
Bottle-blonde bombshell of 1940s and 1950s "B" films who gained entry into Hollywood via the modeling and chorus girl venues. She typically played hardcore floozies, burlesque dancers, and the like. Went on to TV and played sexy foils to Red Skelton, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, among others.

Her singing voice was dubbed by Kay Starr in Down to Earth (1947).

Her role as "Cameo" McQueen in Show Boat (1951), a role not in the stage version or in any other film version, is referred to in the dialogue by Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel as if it were a fairly significant bit part. But in the final release print, it was trimmed to literally a cameo, with absolutely no dialogue.
