Verna Hillie (1914-1997)

  1. Kathleen Burke, Island of Lost Souls, 1931.     Naturally, Paramount organised a contest to find… The Pather Woman! Because despite Charles Laughton as Dr Moreau (oh, that island!) - opposite Richard Arlen, Leila Hyams and Bela Lugosi - Lota, The Panther Woman stole all, lock, stock and poster. Burke beat off Hillie, Lona Andre and producer-actress Gail Patrick to the rôle. She became so identified with Lota, she never won another movie. Paramount signed Hillie - until she contracted Bell’s Palsy, leading to work in health care administration.
