Dance Hall Demoiselles: Poppy Wilde

Belle of the Yukon (1944)

Although lending her decorative face and figure to 30 films in 10 years, Poppy had the distinction of never receiving a film credit. After her (uncredited, of course) role as a saloon girl in Belle of the Yukon (1944), she hung up her garters and packed it in. I wasn't able to find out anything about her life after films, but it was a long one. She died in 2000 at the age of 85 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
