Profile Bio Text
An actress from the age of 6, Anita appeared with Walter Hampden in the Broadway production of Peter Ibbetson. As a juvenile actor, Anita used the name Louise Fremault and made her film debut at 9 in the film `The Six Commandments (1924)`. She continued to make films as a child actor and in 1929 Anita dropped her "Fremault" surname, billing herself by her first and second names only. Unlike many child actors, her film career continued as a teenager and as a blue eyed blonde, Anita became a star in Warner Brothers costume dramas such as `Madame DuBarry (1934)`, `A Midsummer Night`s Dream (1935)`, `The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936)` and at MGM in `Marie Antoinette (1938)`. Anita complained that her looks often interfered with her chances to obtain serious roles. With her ethereal beauty, she continued to appear in ingenue roles into the 40`s as she played girlfriends, sisters and daughters. By 1940, Anita was only in her mid 20`s, but her career had turned to `B` movies and her time on the big screen ended with the rehashed Bulldog Drummond in 1947. In 1956, Anita was cast as Johnny Washbrook`s mother, Nell McLaughin, on the Television series "My Friend Flicka (1956)", the story of a boy and his black horse. Anita was also the substitute host of "The Loretta Young Show (1953)" when Loretta was recuperated from surgery. Other shows Anita hosted included "Theater Time (1957)" and "Spotlight Playhouse (1958)". Her Television guest roles have included "Mannix (1967)" and "The Mod Squad (1968)". Anita devoted her final years to various philanthropic causes.

Wiki Bio Text
==Anita Louise== Actress - Blonde, blue-eyed, Dresden Doll-featured Anita Louise was an actress from age 6, appearing with Walter Hampden in the Broadway production of Peter Ibbetson. She played juvenile roles in silent pictures, billed as Anita Fremault; in 1929, she dropped her "Fremault" surname, billing herself by her first and second names only. Many of her best screen roles were concentrated in the years 1934-1938. She played Titania in Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), the unwed mother of the title character in Anthony Adverse (1936), and two famous personages of the French Revolutionary era: Marie Antoinette in Madame DuBarry (1934) and the Princess de Lamballe in Marie Antoinette (1938). She continued accepting ingenue roles into the 1940s, adding spice to the stew with an occasional villainess (she was the much-hated murder victim in 1944's Nine Girls).
====In 1956,==== looking as young and fragile as ever, she played Johnny Washbrook's mother in the TV series My Friend Flicka. That same year, she was substitute host on The Loretta Young Show while Young (one of Louise's closest friends) recuperated from life-threatening surgery. Louise was long-married to producer Buddy Adler, who died in 1962. Retiring from show business upon the occasion of her second marriage to businessman Henry L. Berger, Anita Louise devoted her final years to charitable pursuits like the Children's Asthma Research Center and the National Hemophilia Foundation.
