June Gale
(07/06/1911 - 11/13/1996)

Born June Gilmartin

When June was performing with her twin sister Jean Gale and her other two sisters, Joan Gale and Jane Gale [also twins], they were billed as quadruplets instead of two sets of twins.

Beginning her career as a dancer and actress on-stage and in films, June Gale went on to become a popular daytime television hostess in Los Angeles during the 1950s. Most famous was her on-air rivalry with her husband (who also hosted his own show), pianist/humorist Oscar Levant. Gale launched her career as part of the dancing Gale Quadruplets. The act was popular in vaudeville during the '20s and made it to Broadway. Gale moved to Los Angeles at age 19 and soon after signed with Fox Studios. Gale made her film debut around 1934 and subsequently appeared in such light fare as Pigskin Parade (1936) and Pardon Our Nerve (1939). She met Oscar Levant while touring in a production of Stage Door. Gale married him in 1939 and they remained together until Levant's death in 1972.
