Actress. Born in New York City, New York, she was the youngest of the Cagney siblings which included her brothers James and William. She started a modeling career in the late 1930s and made her stage debut at the Pasadena Playhouse. She was always backed by her brothers, but still succeeded modestly on her own talent. She did appear in a number of her brother James' films including ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy' in 1942, ‘The Time of Your Life' in 1948, and ‘Man of a Thousand Faces' in 1957. Her best role, however, was probably in 1950's ‘Quicksand' in which she played the femme fatale. She married Jack Morrison in June of 1953 and largely worked in television thereafter. She served for many years as the fashion commentator on the audience-participation series ‘Queen for a Day.' (bio by: Iola)
