Dorothy Page (1904 – 1961) “The Singing Cowgirl”

Grand National (a low budget studio) decided to make a series of westerns featuring a 'singing cowgirl'. Westerns with singing cowboys were popular for years, so why not a singing cowgirl? Their choice for the star was Dorothy Page, a popular radio singer who had already appeared in a few films for other studios.

In late 1938, Grand National Pictures signed Dorothy Page to star in their planned series of westerns featuring a singing cowgirl. The storylines were typical B-western fare.
