Yes, Maria Ouspenskaya was a Russian-born dance and acting teacher, and also a character actress, often playing an older "Madame" somebody in classic films, but she is arguably best remembered as the old gypsy woman Maleva in The Wolf Man and in the sequel Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man.

OK, everybody sing along.....

Felix the Cat,
The wonderful, wonderful cat,
Whenever he gets in a fix,
He reaches into his bag of tricks.....

Felix the Cat,
The wonderful, wonderful cat,
You'll laugh so much* your sides will ache,
Your heart will go pitter-pat
Watching Felix the wonderful cat!
