Biography

Her childhood as Baby June, vaudeville headliner, was immortalized on Broadway in the 1959 musical "Gypsy," in which both June Havoc and her older sister, Louise - who would become burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee - were driven by the ultimate stage mother, Rose Hovick, to become stars. Havoc went on to have a career in TV and films, proving to be a capable actress, even if she never reached the top ranks of Hollywood stars. Blonde-haired and blue-eyed, Havoc was best remembered for her work in the 1940 Broadway production of "Pal Joey" and for such feature films as "Gentleman's Agreement" (1947), in which she played Miss Wales, the Jewish secretary of Gregory Peck who changes her name and finds herself accused of anti-Semitism.
