Who was Kitty Kelly?
Kitty Kelly, was an American stage and film character actress. She was best known as a member of the Ziegfeld Follies and her radio hosting with Columbia Broadcasting. One of her best remembered roles is that of Lt. Ethel Armstrong in the 1943 Paramount wartime drama So Proudly We Hail!. However, she is probably more infamously remembered in the Hal Roach Our Gang comedy short Beginner's Luck, which was released by M-G-M in 1935. In that film, Kelly was cast as the pushy stage mother of Spanky McFarland. Thanks to his friends, she finds herself an unwitting victim, as well as a laughing stock, in the gang's attempt to sabotage and ruin Spanky's Shakespearean stage act in a talent competition.
