Victoria Horne Biography

Victoria Horne (1 November 1911"10 October 2003) was an American character actress, appearing in 49 films (uncredited in 25 of these) during the 1940s and 1950s.


The films in which she appeared included Blue Skies, Forever Amber, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff.. Perhaps her best-known film roles were as Myrtle Mae Simmons in the 1950 film adaptation of Mary Chase's play, Harvey, and as Roberta in the 1952 Three Stooges short subject Cuckoo on a Choo Choo.


She married actor Jack Oakie in 1950 and remained with him until his death on 23 January 1978. After his death, she arranged the posthumous publication of her late husband's book, Jack Oakie's Double Takes and also published a number of other books about him.

Victoria and Jack Oakie lived their entire married life at "Oakridge", their estate at 18650 Devonshire Street (just west of Reseda Boulevard) in Northridge, Los Angeles, California. Victoria Oakie continued to live there after her husband's death and bequeathed the estate to the University of Southern California. After two failed attempts to develop the property, Oakridge was acquired by the City of Los Angeles. The city plans to use the property as a park and community event center. Oakridge was originally commissioned by Barbara Stanwyck and designed by Paul Williams, and is considered to be one of the last remnants of the large Northridge estates famed for thoroughbred breeding. The house and grounds are Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #484.
