Virginia (Patsy) Garrett was born in Atlantic
City, New Jersey, on May 4, 1921, to vaudevillian parents notable as "Mason
and Gwynne." At the age of 7, she began her
own entertainment career as a radio singer. Later, she sang for popular
bandleaders of the day.
Although she had recurring roles on popular TV
shows such as Room 222 and Nanny and the Professor, she is most
remembered for something else: a technical trick in a Purina Cat Food commercial.
Despite her family-friendly persona, her
earliest film role was in 1962's "The Chapman Report," a film portraying the sex lives
of several suburban women, based on the Kinsey Report. Garrett appeared as "Older
Married Woman" (uncredited).
She was married to Alexander Kokinacis (known
as composer Nick Alexander). They had two
children. She died in Indio, California, at age 93, on January 8, 2015.
