Biography

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
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".
