Jane Greer was an American film and television actress, best known for her role as femme fatale Kathie Moffat in the 1947 film noir Out of the Past. Greer was born in Washington, DC, the daughter of Charles Durell McClellan Greer, Jr. and his wife, Bettie. In 1940, at age 15, Greer suffered from a facial palsy, she recovered, but the condition may have contributed to her "patented look" and "a calm, quizzical gaze and an enigmatic expression that would lead RKO to promote her as'The Woman with the Mona Lisa smile'." She claimed that the facial exercises used to overcome the paralysis taught her the importance of facial expression in conveying human emotion. On December 4, 1945, Greer had her name changed to Jane Greer by a court in Los Angeles, she said of her previous name: "Mine is a sissy name. It's too bo-peepish, for the type of role I've been playing. It's like Mary Lou or Mary Ann." A beauty-contest winner and professional model from her teens, Greer began her show-business career as a big-band singer.
She sang in DC, with the orchestra of Enric Madriguera. She "sang phonetically in Spanish" with the group. Howard Hughes spotted Greer modeling in the June 8, 1942, issue of Life, sent her to Hollywood to become an actress. Hughes lent her to RKO to star in many films including Dick Tracy, Build My Gallows High, They Won't Believe Me, the comedy/suspense film The Big Steal, with Out of the Past co-star Robert Mitchum. Hughes refused to let her work for a time. In 1984, she was cast in Against All Odds, a remake of Out of the Past, as the mother of the character she had played in 1947. In 1952, Greer obtained a release from her contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, she said, "When there is a good role at MGM, the producers want Ava. There is no chance for another actress to develop into important stardom at the studio". Greer's noteworthy roles in television included guest appearances on episodes of numerous shows over the decades, such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Quincy, M. E. Murder, She Wrote, a 1975 gig with Peter Falk and Robert Vaughn in an episode of Columbo titled Troubled Waters.
She got to make fun of Out of the Past in a parody with Robert Mitchum on TV's Saturday Night Live in 1987. Greer joined the casts of Falcon Crest in 1984 and Twin Peaks in 1990 in recurring roles until her retirement in 1996. Greer was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1634 Vine Street for her contributions to the motion picture industry; the star was dedicated on February 8, 1960.
