Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mary Lee, born Mary Lee Wooters in Centralia, Illinois (October 24, 1924-June 6, 1996), was a B-movie actress and singer from the late 1930s well into the 1940s, starring mostly in westerns. Cute, with a youthful look well into her thirties, Lee was singing with the Ted Weems Orchestra in the late 1930s, coming to the attention of Republic Pictures. Her first screen appearance was with Warner Bros., in Nancy Drew, Reporter (1939); she portrayed Mary Nickerson, the younger sister of Nancy Drew's (Bonita Granville) boyfriend, Ted Nickerson (Frank Thomas Jr.). The film utilized Lee's vocal talents in "Nursery Rhyme Melody." Lee accepted a job at Republic Pictures, where she starred alongside Gene Autry in South of the Border. Republic signed her to a five-year contract in 1940. She would star in another six films with Autry. In some of the Autry films actress June Storey would play the heroine, with Lee as the younger sister.show more
