Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Redhead Inez Courtney was the quintessential coquettish soubrette of Broadway musical comedy in the 1920's. Having left school, she abandoned plans to become a milliner and instead embarked on a career as a 'specialty dancer' in vaudeville (where she acquired the nickname 'Mosquito'),serving a five-year apprenticeship. She was on Broadway by 1919, first as part of the ensemble but soon garnering good reviews for "The Wild Rose" by Rudolf Friml and then for the college musical "Good News" (1927), where she danced two numbers with Gus Shy.
