LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (AP) — A relative says Beverly Roberts, who co-starred with Humphrey Bogart in the 1936 film "Two Around the World," has died. She was 96.
Her second-cousin Christina Baker says Roberts died Monday at her home in Laguna Niguel of natural causes.
A Warner Bros. contract player from 1935, Roberts made her first film with Al Jolson in "The Singing Kid."
She also appeared with Bogart and Pat O'Brien in "China Clipper" and with Errol Flynn and Joan Blondell in "Perfect Specimen."
After leaving Warner Bros. in 1940, she toured the country as a singer with the Dorsey Brothers band.
In 1950, she became administrator of Theater Authority, a post she held for 25 years.
In her later years, she worked in watercolor painting.
She never married and had no children.
