About June MacCloy

June MacCloy (June 2, 1909--May 5, 2005) was an American actress and singer in the 1930s and 1940s. Born in Sturgis, Michigan, MacCloy moved to Toledo, Ohio as a child. In 1928 she joined Vanities, produced by Earl Carroll, but her mother forced her to quit due to her skimpy costume. When she was a teenager, MacCloy was chosen by song writer/producer Lew Brown (of the prolific team DeSylva, Brown & Henderson) to impersonate Broadway star Harry Richman, singing 'I'm On The Crest of a Wave' in the ninth edition of George White's Scandals (Apollo Theater, July 2, 1928; 230 performances). Just prior to making her first movie MacCloy was working in New York City clubs such as the Abbey and Chateau Madrid.
