Pretty and funny
Una Merkel was both a pretty and funny old time classic girl. Her role in "Born to dance" in the 1930s was great where she co starred with Eleanor Powell, another pretty and talented 1930s girl. Una was also good in "Broadway Melody 1936", as a funny and charming secretary.
Good Looking and Funny
Good actress. I thought she was very attractive. She did a fine job in her acting roles.
Deserved better in life
Watched Murder in the Private Car & she and Charlie Ruggles make a classic pairing-both a hoot!She's definitely underappreciated,as is Charlie Ruggles.Love her with Grady Sutton,too in The Bank Dick,he's so shy as her beau.Thank the nurse who intervened when she tried to od onpills several years after her mother's passing from the gas left on,and thanks to her managing to be saved despite losing her beloved mother.
Happy Birthday Una

I had to stay at home on Monday December 10, 2012 because we were having some work done in our house. Glad I got to spend the day watching many of Una Merkel's films as TCM was celebrating her 109th Birthday. What a gem of an actress. Happy Birthday Una!
Always a pleasure

Una is one that I am always happy to see in a movie. When in a scene she tends to heighten everyone's roles. She was the perfect movie companion and friend. When I think of Una I think of Eve Arden.
One of my favorites!!
Una Merkel is outstanding and, imo, very underrated. I'd love to see her get a "Summer Under the Stars" day for August 2012.
Una Merkel festival
I would like to see an Una Merkel festival sometime.

Una Merkel played in both the 1934 and the 1952 versions of The Merry Widow. Renee
That face! That girl!
I was watching "The Lovely Widow" for the first time and thought her presence was wonderful! What a nice find, on a old movie: pretty, funny and she had a great instinct for comedy. It appears that she lived a long life, too.
