Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

Billed Baby Jane in her earliest films, this Hollywood-born-and-bred moppet actress was the sister of 1940s teenage star Rita Quigley. Although the younger of the two, Juanita entered films first, usually playing the leading lady as a young girl. But unlike Bette Davis' psychotic former child star, this Baby Jane left films to enter a convent. After several years as a nun, Quigley realized that she had made a mistake, left the vocation, and married. She returned to the entertainment industry as an adult and can be spotted as an extra in (of all things) Porky's II: The Next Day (1983).
