Evelyn Venable

Evelyn Venable

Inexplicably, however, Venable's career soon declined; by mid-1935 she was playing a modest supporting role in the fine Katharine Hepburn vehicle "Alice Adams." She did, however, appear in both leading and supporting roles for the rest of the decade in B-films at both major and "poverty row" studios; some of these include "Star for a Night" (1936), "The Frontiersman" (1938), "Hollywood Stadium Mystery" (1938) and "Lucky Cisco Kid" (1940). After providing the voice of the Blue Fairy in Disney's classic animated feature, "Pinocchio" (1940), Venable made one more film in 1943 before retiring to raise her children by cinematographer Hal Mohr. She later earned a Master's degree in Latin and taught for many years on the faculty of UCLA.
