Theresa Harris

Born: 31 December 1911, Houston, Texas, USA
Died: 8 October 1985, Inglewood, California, USA

Theresa Harris was a singer, dancer and actress who broke into films at the birth of the sound era. She was often typecast as maids, but was occasionally given a chance to shine, such as in the film 'Baby Face (1933)' in which she has a ball playing Barbara Stanwyck's friend, Chico.

Theresa Harris is on the right. It is incredible that time would be spent to dress this actress up for her to only appear on screen for about three seconds. Wynne Gibson is the blonde lady walking behind her.
