A pleasant gamin face, a charming French accent, and a relationship with [[Performer~P98871~Stan Laurel~stanlaurel]] were the main ingredients in the screen career of Alice Ardell. In American films from at least 1925, when she appeared in comedy two-reelers with [[Performer~P14466~Chester Conklin~chesterconklin]], Ardell spent most of her time in the 1930s playing French maids. [[Performer~P98871~Laurel~stanlaurel]] cast her as [[Performer~P64069~Fred Scott~fredscott]]'s leading lady in [[Feature~V45664~Songs and Bullets~songsandbullets]] (1938), on which the veteran comedian is listed as the executive producer. It proved Ardell's final film. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
