Betty Wells was originally a 20th-Century-Fox contract starlet whose dancing and singing career began at age three and a half. Named the “Baby Queen” of the Texas Centennial in Fort Worth, she appeared in the second edition of “Meet the People”, which caught the attention of producers and began her contract with 20th Century-Fox, although she also worked for RKO-Radio in “Pretty Girl”. Beginning in early 1945, Betty spent five months in a Dallas, Texas rest home for a malady described at the time as a nervous breakdown brought on by the strain from a lengthy tour of South America, Canada and Alaska as well as a number of studio-sponsored personal appearances. She was scheduled to continue her personal-appearance tours after New Years Day of 1946 with a booking in Mexico City, as she had earlier learned Spanish.
