"Brenda and Cobina" reunited (Cobina Wright Jr., 1921 - 2011)
As much as I love starlets, I adore debs. Deb of the Year (1939 vintage) Cobina Wright, Jr., died on Sept. 1, I just found out. She was the daughter of a New York stockbroker and his socially ambitious wife, and she and Brenda Frazier became huge pre-War celebutantes (they were poked fun at by everyone from nightclub comics “Brenda and Cobina” to, decades later, Green Acres--remember when Alf and Ralph Monroe would call each other Brenda and Cobina?).
Cobina proved herself a charming starlet in a handful of 20th Century-Fox films in the 1940s: Moon Over Miami, Charlie Chan in Rio, Week-End in Havana, Footlight Serenade. And she nearly snagged Prince Phillip as a husband till that Elizabeth girl got him away.
