Jane Withers

Birthday: April 12, 1926 (95 years) Died: August 7, 2021 (2 years Ago in Burbank)

HomeTown: Atlanta, Georgia, United States

During the early stages of the Great Depression, when life was more like a famine than a feast, child stars became the blue plate special of the day, served up by Hollywood to help nourish a nation that was besieged by difficulties. Following the monumental success that 20th Century-Fox had in the early 1930s with Shirley Temple, every studio went out looking for its own precocious little commodity who could pack ’em in the aisles despite the lean times. Shirley Temple was that little commodity. While Paramount was busy creating “Little” Mitzi Green, MGM was shopping around Jackie Cooper in the hopes of finding a box office jingle that was comparable. Janie Withers, another extremely talented performer, met all of the requirements, and although she achieved the same level of minor prominence as the others, she did so for Temple Fox Studios as well. Because of this, Jane continued to play somewhat of a supporting role to Temple throughout the majority of her reign at the young “B” level (what child star didn’t?). Despite this, she rose to prominence on her own and became a major bright star. The hellraiser with the dark hair and freckles was born on April 12th, 1926 in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. Her parents, Walter and Lavinia Ruth (Elble), didn’t waste any time pushing their daughter, Jane, into the world of entertainment as soon as they could after it caught their attention. Jane was a born performer; she was already giving shows by the time she could walk and talk. At the age of three, she was already taking lessons in singing and dancing, and by the age of four, she was already the star of her own radio programme in Atlanta. She was simply uncanny when it came to impersonating the superstars of her day (W.C. Fields, Marie Dressler, and Charles Chaplin), and she was a veteran pint-sized performer by the time her family moved to Los Angeles after her father was transferred by his company. A spot-on mimic, she was simply uncanny when it came to impersonating the superstars of her day (W.C. Fields, Marie Dressler, and Charles Chaplin). Jane enrolled in Lawlor’s Professional School, and shortly thereafter, she began modelling in shows, performing at benefits, and making the typical rounds of studios in order to pick up extra work while she waited for her big break in a feature film. She discovered her calling at the age of eight when she won the coveted role of the spoiled, obnoxious, doll-ripping, bicycle-riding brat who terrorises sweet Shirley Temple in the film Bright Eyes, which was produced by Twentieth Century-Fox (1934). Because of her notoriety, Fox offered Jane a lucrative contract, and for the next seven years she led a successful career as the child star of nearly fifty films classified as “B.” Jane was a scrappy little tomboy who could take on any boy at any time. Whereas Shirley was cuddly and ultra huggable, Jane was fun, rambunctious, and full of kinetic energy. In contrast, Shirley was ultra huggable and cuddly. Her lively vehicles made full use of her talents for impersonating movie stars as well. Her impersonations were hilarious. Jane was rewarded by the studio with a contract that paid her $125 per week for a period of six months after she played the title role in Ginger (1935), in which she imitated the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet. This led to her first major success in the film industry. Her talents as a singer and dancer were put to use in films such as “This Is the Life” (1935) and “Paddy O’Day” (1936). Due to the fact that she was the star, of course her behaviour was modified from the spoiled brat that she had been against Temple. Jane Withers was born on April 12, 1926 in Atlanta, United States. Jane Withers died on August 7, 2021 at the age of 95 years in Burbank. Check below for more deets about Jane Withers.
