Singer-actress Gloria DeHaven, a star of MGM musical throughout the 1940s has died. She was 91.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Ms. DeHaven, who made her screen debut in Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times (1936) as Paulette Goddard’s kid sister — her father served as an assistant director on the film — died Saturday while in hospice care in Las Vegas, her daughter, Faith Fincher-Finkelstein, told The Hollywood Reporter. DeHaven suffered a stroke about three months ago, she said. The vivacious DeHaven, a studio player at MGM, appeared in a number of top films with leading stars, including Thousands Cheer (1943) with Gene Kelly; Two Girls and a Sailor (1944) with June Allyson and Van Johnson; Step Lively (1944) with Frank Sinatra; Summer Holiday (1948) with Mickey Rooney; The Doctor and the Girl (1949) with Glenn Ford and Nancy Reagan; Two Tickets to Broadway (1951) with Janet Leigh and Tony Martin; and The Girl Rush (1955) with Rosalind Russell. … Her last movie appearance came as a lovely widow and romantic interest of Jack Lemmon’s character on the cruise-ship set Out to Sea (1997). She played Annie Tippy-toes Wylie, a bisexual CB radio aficionado who also had an affair with the husband of Louise Lasser’s character, on the fabled Norman Lear syndicated series ‘Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.’
