Ann Sothern ( Harriette Arlene Lake : Valley City, North Dakota, January 22, 1909 – Ketchum, Idaho, March 15, 2001) was an American film and television actress.
Sothern left home very young and began his film career as an extra in 1927 with the film, Broadway Nights, at the age of 18. During 1929 and 1930, he acts as a showgirl in films like The Show of Shows and Whoopee ! (as one of the “Goldwyn Girls”). He also appeared on Broadway and has trained voice, from time to time singing in the movies.
On Broadway in 1931, he played an important role in America’s Sweetheart (135 performances in which he sang “He Got Five Dollars” and “We’ll Be The Same”) and in Everybody’s Welcome (139 performances).
In 1934, Sothern signed a contract with Columbia Pictures, but after two years the LA studio released his contract. In 1936, he signed for RKO Pictures and after a series of films that failed to attract an audience, Sothern left RKO and signed for MGM, making his first film for them in 1939.
In a paper originally intended for Jean Harlow, Sothern was released in 1939 to the cinema, Maisie, as brassy Brooklyn burlesque dancer Mary Anastasia O’Connor, who also uses the stage name Maisie Ravier. In Mary C. McCall Jr’s script of the Wilson Collison novel, Maisie is left penniless in a small town in Wyoming, takes a job as a ranch and becomes a servant trapped in a web of romantic entanglements. After years of struggle, Sothern had his first real hit, and a string of “Maisie” comedy sequels followed, beginning in 1940 from the Congo Maisie, followed by 1947’s Undercover Maisie, in which Maisie infiltrates a gang of men in charge of a false swami. In 1943 Time magazine’s Swing Shift Maisie exam praised Sothern and described her as “one of the smartest comedians in the company”.
On November 24, 1941, Sothern performed at the Radio Lux theater adaptation of Maisie was a lady, and the popularity of the film’s series spawned her own radio show, The Adventures of Maisie, aired on CBS between 1945 and 1947, on cooperation of Radiodifusión Sistema in 1952 and on the distribution between 1949 and 1953.
In 1949, Sothern appeared in the Oscar-winning film, Letter to Three Wives. The film won rave reviews, but not to stimulate his career. During the 1950s, appeared in a few films, mostly appeared in various television shows. In 1953, he played the lead role in the series Private Secretary. After the Secretary’s end in 1957, he appeared on his own show, The Ann Sothern Show, until 1961. Both shows were successful and he won four Smyth Emmy nominations.
