Today, on the 86th anniversary of Timothy’s birth, we receive the sad news of the passing this morning of Betty Rowland. Betty portrayed Clarence Hilliard’s long-suffering wife Edna in The World’s Greatest Sinner (1962). This is not Betty Rowland the burlesque performer, as has been previously reported. I cannot get these videos to embed for the life of me, but here are links to clips from Sinner that feature Betty.
Romeo Carey visited Betty last year and got a wonderful interview with her. I hope to be presenting more about Betty in future blog posts. For now, we wish her peaceful rest and send much love to her family.
