Movies and television
Cezon appeared in Ken Murray's Blackouts. She played a blonde "gold digger" in several Three Stooges films. Her flair for physical comedy helped, and made memorable appearances in Corny Casanovas, Up in Daisy's Penthouse, and Tricky Dicks. After leaving the Columbia shorts department, Cezon had a recurring role as receptionist Gertie on Perry Mason between 1957 and 1964. She also worked as Bette Davis' stand in/double, most notably in the 1964 thriller Dead Ringer.
Though her surname was spelled 'Cezan' in Stooge films, it appears as 'Cezon' in all her other appearances. Cezon confirmed that the correct spelling is the latter.
