Actress. The lesser-known sister of Joan Blondell, she performed in around two dozen Hollywood features. First appearing on Broadway in the 1935 "Three Men on a Horse", she made her silver screen debut with 1938's "Daredevil Drivers". Gloria co-starred with Ronald Reagan in "Accidents Will Happen" (1938), then saw most of her work in the 1940s as the voice of Disney's 'Daisy Duck'. With the coming of television, she was kept busy with "I Love Lucy", "Thriller", and other fare. During the mid-1950s she had the regular role of 'Honeybee Gillis' on "The Life of Riley". Following her turn as 'Gloria' in "Calvin and the Colonel" up to 1962, she retired in Los Angeles, where she died of cancer. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
