In the pages of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen D. Youngkin discusses the making of Black Angel, including an interview with June Vincent.

Born Dorothy June Smith in 1920, June Vincent moved with her family to Keene, New Hampshire, when she was 11 years old. After graduating from Keene High School, she began as a fashion model in New York City while studying acting, and after appearing on Broadway, she was signed to a contract with Universal Pictures in 1943. In 1946, she worked with Peter Lorre in Black Angel.
