Rafaela Ottiano was an Italian actress who came to America and played dangerously hysterical characters. Her menials, from maids to housekeepers, were not to be relied upon, and she was a formidable adversary for Mae West in "She Done Him Wrong". She died from a heart attack.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
HONORS and AWARDS:.
Marcel: [Referring to Lachna, the servant girl] Malita, where did you get her?
Malita: In a Berlin slum. She's an in-bred peasant half-wit. But I wanted no prying wits about me.
Malita: [after Lachna has been shrunk] You've corrected her brain, Marcel. She's no longer the stupid half-wit. Oh, she's going to be beautiful!
