: Can anyone confirm my guess that Mary Kelly was the Blue Fairie (in Pinoc. of spring '40 and first show of 40-41 Season - "Wake Up, Don Wilson, You Big Lug, It's time to do a Jell-O Plug").

: Another question (mostly to Laura): Are there any photos of Mary Kelly? Are they post-able?

: Thanks and Regards to all,

Yes, Mary Kelly played the Blue Fairy in that sketch....The dead giveaway is that she calls everyone "Kid"....that was a Mary Kelly trademark.

Mary can be seen as the heavy-set hotel chambermaid in the 1940 Paramount film "Love Thy Neighbor" starring Jack Benny and Fred Allen....and she calls everyone "Kid" THERE too:

Maid: "You need a bigger room, Kid!"

Jack: "I wouldn't if you'd give up starches!"
