She was just a teenager and entered dance marathons to survive. Havoc went on to star in Four Jacks and a Jill, My Sister Eileen, Gentleman's Agreement, Pal Joey and The June Havoc Show.
June even received a Tony nomination for best director in a play she also wrote, Marathon '33.
She was 97-years-old.
