I loved Bea as Mrs Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie, my friends and I went around quoting her lines like "sad to be all alone in the world", so I tracked down her silent movie Exit Smiling in 1926, and On Approval in 1943, she also pops up in a Bing Crosby vehicle Dr Rhythm. Via Bea !
Every other inch a dyke. "Exit Smiling" is a favorite. Bea AND Franklin Pangborn in one picture!
