Alice Faye Overview:

Legendary actress, Alice Faye, was born Alice Jeanne Leppert on May 5, 1915 in New York City, NY. Faye appeared in over 35 film roles. Her best known films include In Old Chicago (1937), Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938), Lillian Russell (1940), Week-End in Havana (1941), and The Gang's All Here (1943). Faye died at the age of 83 on May 9, 1998 in Rancho Mirage, CA and was laid to rest in Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Cathedral City) Cemetery in Cathedral City, CA.

MINI BIO:

With a warm smile and warm voice to match, Alice Faye started out as a singer with Rudy Vallee's band. She became a much-in-demand actress for sympathetic roles in the musicals of the thirties and early forties before retiring early to concentrate on her marriage to bandleader-singer-actor-comedian Phil Harris (her second husband). Faye and Harris shared a radio show from 1946-1954. Harris won renewed popularity doing cartoon voices in Disney features, most notably Baloo the bear in The Jungle Book, but Faye's own comeback roles did not showcase her to advantage.

Alice Faye Quotes:

Jimmy Dolan: Don't forget, we've got another radio audition tomorrow. You know, this radio racket is a lot harder than Vaudeville used to be. Remember when we got married?
Jerry Dolan: No, and don't remind me. By the way, I'm getting tired of these radio auditions. If we don't land a job soon, I'm going home to my mother.
Jerry Dolan: Well, that's better than bringing the old bat here.


Susan Parker: Do you know where Ching-Ching is?
Tommy Randall: Yes.
Susan Parker: Well, would you mind telling me?
Tommy Randall: She's below, getting ready to leave the ship at the next stop. They're sending her to an orphanage for girls. She'll be marching in lockstep and eating gruel within a week. I hope you like it!
Susan Parker: Surely something can be done. That can't happen to Ching-Ching.
Tommy Randall: Wait a minute, I've got an idea. You're going to marry old sourpuss, aren't you?
Susan Parker: I beg your pardon!
Tommy Randall: I'm sorry, no offense meant. Look, I wanted to adopt Ching-Ching, but they won't let me because I'm unmarried. But you're getting married, you can adopt her.
Susan Parker: But Richard and I...
Tommy Randall: [shouting] You don't want her to go to an instituion, do you?
Susan Parker: [shouting] Of course not!
Tommy Randall: Look, I've gone completely soft about this kid. I know it's hard to believe, but true. Won't you please take her and let me pay for her upbringing until I can take her myself? That'll be as quick as I can get to the States and come back with a wife. You may not believe it, but there are quite a few women back home who'd be willing to marry me. Look, it's not for me, it's for Ching-Ching! Won't you please do it?
Susan Parker: All right, I'll do it.


Edie Allen: [singing] Oh, the polka dance, the polka dance, the polka dance is gone/But the polka dot, the polka dot, the polka dot lives on.
