Actress. Born Eleanor Clough in San Francisco, she performed in vaudeville before producer Hal Roach brought her to Hollywood in 1932. Her elegant features were flexible enough for broad slapstick and she added spice to several comedies starring Laurel & Hardy, "Our Gang" (aka "The Little Rascals"), and Charley Chase. She went on to a steady if unspectacular career playing nurses and society ladies, often for MGM. Among her 73 films are "Choo-Choo!" (1932), "County Hospital" (1932), "Free Wheeling" (1932), "Our Relations" (1936), "Test Pilot" (1938), "The Women" (1939), "Force of Evil" (1948), "Father of the Bride" (1950), "When Worlds Collide" (1951), "Pat and Mike" (1952), and "The Band Wagon" (1953). During the late 1950s she also made guest appearances on TV's "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show" and "Leave It to Beaver". Etterre bowed out with two dramas from director John Frankenheimer, "All Fall Down" and "The Manchurian Candidate" (both 1962). She died at 96 at a nursing home in Newport Beach, California.
