Quigley, Juanita “Baby Jane”

Juanita Quigley started as a child actress under the name of Baby Jane, later making films as an adult under her real name.

Rita Allene Quigley is her older sister.

From the 1935 Lawlor Professionals:
“Baby Jane” is listed in this Lawlor Professional School casting book under “Some Stars who have attended our School” with the comment: “We ‘discovered’ Baby Jane now at Universal Studios.”

From the November 24, 1938 Mar-Ken Journal:
•PREVIEWS: THAT CERTAIN AGE. Reviewed by Buddy Pepper. A Joe Pasternak Production, Directed by Edward Ludwig. Starring Deanna Durbin.

This long awaited Durbin opus finally arrived and proved to be a huge success. Universal has done everything to make this one of her most outstanding pictures. The supporting cast includes Melvyn Douglas as the war-torn correspondent, and Jackie Cooper as the hero. Irene Rich, Juanita Quigley (who steals every scene in which she appears), John Halliday, Jackie Searl, and Nancy Carroll handle their assignments capably. Mar-Ken’s Peggy Stewart does a commendable part.

Deanne grows prettier and more captivating with each picture, and she completely wins the audience with her charm and voice. She sings several numbers, including the Aria from “Romeo and Juliet”, “Les Filles de Cadiz”, “My Own”, and “You’re As Pretty as a Picture.”
Chalk up another success for Deanna Durbin with “That Certain Age”, her most glorious hit!
A Universal Production. Previewed at Pantages Theater.
