Constance Moore, a versatile actress of Hollywood films in the 1930s and 1940s, has died. She was 84.

Moore died Friday of heart failure after a long illness, said her son Michael Maschio. A memorial service was held Tuesday.

During her career Moore appeared in comedies, dramas, musicals, westerns and even a 1939 series called “Buck Rogers.” She also starred with Robert Young in a short-lived TV series (1961-62) “Window on Main Street,” following Young’s success in “Father Knows Best.”

She appeared in several B pictures as well as the classic W.C. Fields comedy, “You Can’t Cheat an Honest Man.”

Moore also appeared in such films as “Earl Carroll Vanities,” “Show Business,” “Take a Letter Darling,” “I Wanted Wings” and “Las Vegas Nights.”
