Biography by Sandra Brennan

Actress, singer and former Ziegfeld star Cass Daley was a popular comedienne known for her ability to do physical humor and for her crazy raucous singing. The gangly gal with the overbite appeared in several Paramount musicals during the '40s and '50s. She started out singing with bands and soon became a popular nightclub and radio comedienne. This led her to heading the 1936 Follies on Broadway. In the early 1950s, Daley retired from films, and during the early '70s she attempted a comeback. Unfortunately, in 1975, she accidentally stumbled over a glass coffee table while alone in her home and bled to death when a shard of glass cut her neck. Her final film was Norwood in 1970.
