Cass Daley was born in 1915 in Philaadelphia. She was a populat supporting player in Hollywood films of the 1940’s. Her movies include “The Fleet’s In” in 1942 with Dorothy Lamour and Betty Hutton and “Duffy’s Tavern”. She died in 1975 as a result of a fall in her home.
Brassy, gangly Cass Daley, the daughter of a streetcar conductor, started her career as a band vocalist. She displayed a flair for zany comedy that made her a big hit in nightclubs and on radio, and she started working in films in the early 1940s. Her eccentric, off-the-wall singing and dancing combined with her gawky, buck-toothed appearance endeared her to movie audiences in the 1940s and 1950s, most notably in knockabout comics Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson‘s Crazy House (1943), in which she played both herself and a goofy lookalike, “Sadie Silverfish”. She retired from films in the 1950s and made only occasional appearances into the 1970s. She died in a freak accident at home when she fell over a glass table and a shard of broken glass slashed her neck, causing her to bleed to death.
