|Other names||Cathy Case|
Case was cast as Helen Crosby in the 1953 episode, "The Lady with the Blue Silk Umbrella" on the syndicated television anthology series, Death Valley Days, hosted by Stanley Andrews. In the story line, Helen carries official California statehood papers in her umbrella to shield them from ruffians who want to destroy the documents. Rick Vallin played Lieutenant Bob Hastings, and Howard Negley (1898-1983) was featured in this episode as California pioneer John Bidwell.
On February 5, 1967, Case was driving in Hollywood, California, when her car collided head-on with the car of actor Dirk Rambo, the twin brother of actor Dack Rambo. Rambo was killed in the fire that resulted from the impact and his passenger Horace H. Hester, was seriously injured. A Los Angeles municipal court judge dismissed felony drunken driving and manslaughter charges against her two months later.
Case died in North Hollywood, California, shortly before her 46th birthday.
