Connie Cezon (March 28, 1925 – February 26, 2004) was an American film actress. Born Consuelo Cezon in Oakland, California, Cezon made over 30 film and television appearances between 1951 and 1964.

Movies and TV[edit]

Modern viewers will remember Cezon as a perfect blonde "gold digger" in several Three Stooges films. Her flair for physical comedy helped, and made memorable appearances in Corny Casanovas, Up in Daisy's Penthouse, and Tricky Dicks. After leaving the Columbia shorts department, Cezon had a recurring role as receptionist 'Gertie' on Perry Mason between 1957 and 1964.

After retiring from the screen, Cezon operated and ran a cat-boarding service in Los Angeles called Connie's Kitty Castle.[1]

Though her surname was spelled 'Cezan' in the Stooge films, it appears as 'Cezon' in all her other appearances. Cezon confirmed that the correct spelling is the latter.[1]

Death[edit]

Cezon died of complications from breast cancer surgery on February 26, 2004.
