June 41 as Alice Talton, she is the seventh member of the "The Navy Blues Sextet," for Navy Blues, added as a last-minute measure. She doesn't appear in the film that created the sextet, but she's a much need substitute. "If one of the others gets the migraine, has to see the dentist, has a heavy morning-after or, for any other reason, cannot appear - Alice is there." The seven beauties, including Marguerite Chapman, Lorraine Gettman, Peggy Diggins, Claire James, Kay Aldridge, and Georgia Carroll, are sent to Honolulu for the world premiere, then return to make a cross-country junket starting in Dallas, Texas, and ending in New York City, where Sherman Billingsley gives them a well-publicized party at his famous Stork Club.
3 September 41 columnist Louella Parsons reports: “The first stopping place of Warner’s Navy Blues sextet is Dallas, the home of Georgia Carroll. Then they go to Memphis and then to New York. In New York Sherman Billingsley is giving them a party at the Stork Club. You can leave it to Bob Taplinger, Warner’s praise genius, to think up something for the girls and here it is: They have an act in which all of them appear as advocates of shorter dresses - defense saving. All of the girls, Georgia Carroll, Kay Aldridge, Peggy Diggins, Marguerite Chapman, Lorraine Gettman, and Alice Talton, are giving a farewell party tonight at the Mocambo. They’ll leave Wednesday and it is really a stunt for movie beauties to give the tired businessmen something to think about besides war and other worries.”
