~Biography~
The daughter of an actress and a prominent New York lawyer, June Collyer made her first film
appearance as "herself," appearing with several other debuting debutantes in 1927's Broadway
Nights. Collyer's sophistication served her well in such early-talkie roles as Amy Spettigue in
Charley's Aunt (1930) and Mrs. Reynolds in Alexander Hamilton (1931). By the mid-1930s, she was
limited to grade-"B" fare along the lines of One Frightened Night and Murder by Television. It
hardly mattered, however, since she was more devoted to her off-screen "role" as the wife of actor
Stuart Erwin than her screen career. After fifteen years' retirement, Collyer re-emerged in 1950 to
play "Mrs. Erwin" on the long-running TV sitcom The Stu Erwin Show (aka Trouble With Father).
June Collyer was the sister of TV game show host Bud Collyer and film editor Richard Heermance;
her niece was Wisconsin TV and radio personality Cynthia Collyer.
