"Brenda Starr, Reporter"; Columbia, 1945

Joan Woodbury is probably best known today for her appearances in low budget mystery and horror films, like "Rouges Tavern" (1936), "King of the Zombies" (1941), "The Phantom Killer" (1942), and "The Chinese Cat" (1944).

Her one serial was Columbia's "Brenda Starr, Reporter" (1945), based on the popular comic strip by Dale Messick. The plot concerned Brenda trying to prevent a group of mobsters from retrieving a hidden cache of stolen money.

After that Wooodbury returned to feature film work, like "Northwest Trail" (1946). One of her last films was Ib Melchior's "The Time Travelers" (1964).
