Arleen Whelan (September 1, 1916 – April 7, 1993[1]) was an American film actress.

Early years

Whelan was a native of Salt Lake City, Utah.[2] Before she became an actress, she worked in Southern California as a manicurist, contributing her earnings to help with her family's expenses.[3]


Whelan appeared in 25 films between 1937 and 1957, reportedly after 20th Century Fox director H. Bruce Humberstone saw Whelan working as a manicurist in a barbershop. After her screen test, the studio cast Whelan as the female lead in a film version of Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped (1938).[4]

Whelan's Broadway credits include Oh, Brother! (1945) and The Doughgirls (1942).[5]

Personal life

Whelan wed Alex D'Arcy (an actor) in September 1940, and they were divorced in 1943.[6] On October 1, 1942, she married Hugh Owen (a film distributor). They separated on July 8, 1952, and she filed for divorce in 1953.[7] Her third marriage, to Warren O. Cagney, also ended in divorce.[2]

On April 8, 1993, Whelan died in Orange, California, following a stroke.[2]
