The details


Ann Gillis (born Alma Mabel Conner, February 12, 1927, in Little Rock, Arkansas), sometimes credited as Anne Gillis or Ann Gilles, is a retired American actress.
Ann Gillis started her career in the early 1930s, when she was seven years old. After some smaller roles, she got her first big part in King of Hockey (1936). In the following years she played supporting roles, and her film studio, Warner Brothers, wanted her to be a second Shirley Temple, but most of the time she only played spoiled brats. One of her best roles was Becky Thatcher in David O. Selznicks The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938). She also provided the voice of Faline as an adult in Bambi (1942). She ended her film career in 1947.
Following her Hollywood career she turned to occasional television work. Gillis later came back into acting making 2 episodes of "The Saint" in 1964/5 followed by a small part in 2001: A Space Odyssey
