She made movies back in Hollywood’s golden age. A time where special effects weren’t the star of the show. Actors and actresses had to act.

A star for more than 70 years

Not only was Jane Withers “one of the most beloved child stars,” Josephine the plumber became an advertising icon recognized by generations. She passed away peacefully at the age of 95 on Saturday, August 7th, 2021 in Burbank, California.

Jane Withers had a long and industrious career as a Hollywood star, credited with around 70 films in her seven-decade career. During America’s first Great Depression she appeared on the silver screen alongside legendary Shirley Temple in the comedy drama “Bright Eyes,” released in 1934.

That was her seventh professional acting role. In that film, she was cast as the “antagonistic spoiled child that was the perfect contrast to Shirley Temple’s sweet-hearted and lovable orphan character.”

From there it was “child labor laws be damned.” Over the “1930s and 40s, she appeared in upwards of four films a year.” Even Hollywood insiders recognize that as “no small feat!” Modern liberals would call it child slavery. In tinseltown, that’s how life was for a young star.

Dozens of credits

When she reached her early twenties she got pregnant in self-defense. The studios grudgingly gave her some time off because “she’d earned dozens of credits to her name and was quite accomplished.”

After starting her family, she returned to Hollywood about ten years later when she “took up a role alongside the effervescent Elizabeth Taylor, heartthrob Rock Hudson, and luminous James Dean in 1956’s Giant.” There were many more roles for the star over the years.

As related by the family, no cause of death was listed for the star but she “was surrounded by her loved ones.”

Daughter Kennedy Errair, notes, “My mother was such a special lady. She lit up a room with her laughter, but she especially radiated joy and thankfulness when talking about the career she so loved and how lucky she was.”
