Mitzi Green was an American child actress for Paramount and RKO, in the early talkie era.

Born in The Bronx, New York, Green was cast in such conventional juvenile parts as Becky Thatcher in Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn opposite Jackie Coogan and Jackie Searl. At the age of 14, she played a soubrette role in the 1934 film,

Transatlantic Merry-Go-Round; this film closed out the first stage of her Hollywood career.

She went on to Broadway, where she starred in the original production of Rodgers and Hart's Babes in Arms. One of Green's numbers in the musical was "My Funny Valentine," which would ultimately become a jazz standard in many cover recordings and performances.
