Constance Moore (January 18, 1920, Sioux City, Iowa — September 16, 2005 in Los Angeles, California) was a singer and actress. Her most noted work was in wartime musicals such as Show Business and Atlantic City and the classic 1939 movie serial Buck Rogers, in which she played Wilma Deering, the only female character in the serial.

Life and career

Moore was born in Sioux City, Iowa, but her family moved away when she was aged six months[1] and she spent most of her formative years in Dallas, Texas. All she wanted was to sing, and in the 30's she got a job with CBS radio. While working on one of their musical series she impressed a scout from Universal Studios and signed a contract with them. Among her costars was W. C. Fields in You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939). She appeared on Broadway in the musical By Jupiter.

She retired from films in 1947 but made sporadic appearances over the next few decades. She appeared on a USO tour with Bob Hope and the Nicholas Brothers in 1951. She painted still lifes and in 1976 was the chairperson for the Braille Institute Auxiliary in Beverly Hills, California. Moore married her agent, John Maschio, when she was eighteen. They were together for 63 years until his death in 1998.

In the 1961-1962 season, Moore co-starred on CBS as Robert Young's romantic interest in his short-lived nostalgia series, Window on Main Street. The series also featured Ford Rainey as a newspaper editor.

Moore died September 16, 2005, at the age of 85 following a long illness. She was interred at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, Los Angeles. Moore was survived by two children, two sisters, two grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
