Acting career

Having had a long radio career since the early 1920s, listeners recognised her as The Wintergreen Witch on The Cinnamon Bear radio program (1937), Annie Wood and Mrs. Littlefield on Crime Classics (1953), Ma Danields on The Gallant Heart (1944), as well several semi-regular roles on Broadway Is My Beat, On Stage, and The Abbott and Costello Show. Wentworth also did the voices for Mama Katzenjammer in the Katzenjammer Kids adaption, The Captain and the Kids.

Later years/death

She later became a film actress in the 1940s, starring in several Red Ryder Western films. She worked as a voice artist for Walt Disney Studios; as Nanny, Queenie the Cow and Lucy the Goose in One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961) and as Madame Mim in The Sword in the Stone (1963), her final credited film appearance. She died in 1974 at age 84.


  • The Cinnamon Bear (1937) (voice) as The Wintergreen Witch. She appeared as a character actress in many radio dramas and impersonated Mae West in the 1935 CALLING ALL CARS drama 'The Mae West Jewel Robbery'. Mae herself would have been out of the question because at the time she was the highest paid actress in Hollywood - much too expensive for a series that aired only on the West coast.
