Actress. A pretty brunette, she is remembered from numerous cinematic features of the 1940s. Born Marcia Eloise Griffin to a vaudeville family, she was raised within the theatrical milieu and made her professional debut at age three. After receiving a Paramount contract, she made her 1944 silver screen bow billed as 'Judith Gibson' in "The Fleet's In". Teala went on to appearances in several Paramount movies, some of the classics, including the 1942 "Holiday Inn" and 1944's "Double Indemnity". She spent eight months on Broadway starring with Danny Kaye in "Let's Face It", earned good reviews for the 1944 "Delinquent Daughters", at that point taking the name Teala Loring to distinguish her from a girl named Julie Gibson, and also in 1944 was loaned to the low-budget Monogram Pictures. Teala made a number of notable appearances, her credits including the 1945 "Black Market Babies", 1946's Charlie Chan flick "Dark Alibi", and the 1947 "Fall Guy". She made her final screen appearance in the 1950 "Arizona Cowboy" and that same year married Eugene Pickler and left show business to raise her eventual six children. Teala lived out her days in south Texas and died of injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident. A number of her movies are preserved on DVD; she was the older sister of actresses Debra Paget and Lisa Gaye.
