Actress June Knight studied dancing as a youngster to bolster her frail legs and ended up as a featured player in many Broadway shows and films of the 1930s.

Knight appeared in children's revues in Los Angeles and then teamed with Jack Holland to dance at a series of hotels across the state.

Florenz Ziegfeld signed her for his "Hot Cha" musical on Broadway, and she later appeared in other New York productions before signing a contract with Universal Studios in the 1930s.

Over the years, she was seen onscreen in "Take a Chance," "Wake Up and Dream," "Broadway Melody of 1936" and other low-budget musicals.

Her last Broadway appearance was in "The Would-Be Gentlemen" with Bobby Clark, and she toured with Clark in "Sweethearts" shortly before retiring.
