Jane Randolph, Star of Lewton Films, Dies at 93

Actress Jane Randolph, who played Alice in Val Lewton's CAT PEOPLE (1942) and CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE (1944), has passed away at the age of 93.

Randolph also appeared in Anthony Mann's RAILROADED! (1947).

Randolph made a unique contribution to Disney film history, serving as an ice skating model for the ice sequence in BAMBI (1942).

She retired for marriage to Jaime del Amo, whose family developed the Del Amo shopping mall in Torrance, California.

Update: Here's a nice post on Randolph's performances. (Hat tip: Raquelle.)

Late Update: An obituary from The Washington Post.

I spent my young adult years in the South Bay and went to the Del Amo Mall all the time. Interesting. I guess I never realized it was named for a family.
