That's the adorable Helen at the bottom, rolling her eyes. This is a promo for her second film, "Sweetie." On March 13, 1930, "Sweetie" was the first talkie ever screened at the Minor Theatre (the oldest movie theater in the United States).


A sheet of music for one of Helen's popular songs, "Don't Be Like That." The caption reads, "Helen Kane (The Personality Girl)." This cover appeared on many of her sheet music releases.

Nothing But the Truth (1929)

Sweetie (1929) Although only her second film and technically in a supporting role, Helen received billing above the title for this movie (thanks to Sterling for the information)

Dangerous Nan McGrew (1930) For many, this is Helen's most memorable starring role.

Pointed Heels (1930)Helen had a large role in this movie, and received a higher billing than Fay Wray of "King Kong" fame (thanks to Sterling for the information)

Heads Up (1930)

Flying High (1930)

Paramount on Parade (1930) Helen had only a small part in this film. She plays a singing schoolteacher who asks her students, "What did Cleopatra say?" The students reply, "Boop-Boopa-Doop!"
