Penny Singleton

  1. Rochelle Hudson, Smuggled Cargo, 1938.        Singleton was hung up on another gig, allowing Hudson to join the thriller. This was a year before Singleton started the first of her 29 movies based on Chic Young’s Blondie comic-strip.  
  2. Pamela Britton, Blondie, TV, 1957.        Big shock for Blondie fans! NBC dropped Singelton, the very reason why the cinema franchise had been such a success, but kept her screen husband, Arthur Lake, as Dagwood (instead of Hal Le Roy from the 1954 pilot) opposite Britton as his new wife. Minus Singleton, both TVersions (NBC, then CBS) died after a single season. Penny was later the (ton) mother of The Jetsons, 1962-1962. Blondie In Space!
