A lively presence in Paramount college musicals of the 1930s, almost always paired with the fresh-faced Johnny Downs, brunette Eleanore Whitney was said to have been taught tap dancing by no less an expert than Bill Robinson. On stage from the age of ten, she later toured vaudeville with singer Rae Samuels and became known as "the world`s fastest tap dancer." By no means a threat to Eleanor Powell, Whitney left films in 1938 to marry. Surprisingly, she returned to the Broadway stage in 1946, opposite Bobby Clark in Moliere`s The Would-Be Gentleman.
