“Baby June” Havoc reported dead

“Baby June” Havoc reported dead

“Baby June” Havoc is probably best known (ironically) for the fictionalized version of her in the musical Gypsy.  Her sister was the famous ecdysiast Gypsy Rose Lee, although as children, “Baby June” had been the headliner.

As an adult, June worked extensively, but may be remembered by geeks for being stalked by killer tumbleweeds (yes, killer tumbleweeds) in the original The Outer Limits episode, Cry of Silence.

    RIP – June Havoc, 97, started in vaudeville as Baby June, & was immortalized in the musical “Gypsy” based on the life of her real-life sister, the stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. June loved her sister, but said, “I loathed her life.” http://urdead2me.wordpress.com/2010/03/28/rip-june-havoc/
