Alice Jeane Faye (née Leppert; May 5, 1915 – May 9, 1998) was an American actress and singer. She is described by The New York Times as "one of the few movie stars to walk away from stardom at the peak of her career". She was the second wife of actor and comedian Phil Harris.
She is often associated with the Academy Award–winning standard "You'll Never Know", which she introduced in the 1943 musical film Hello, Frisco, Hello.
Alice Faye was born as Alice Jeane Leppert on May 5, 1915, in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan, the daughter of Alice (née Moffit) and Charles Leppert. She was raised an Episcopalian. Faye's entertainment career began in vaudeville as a chorus girl (she failed an audition for the Earl Carroll Vanities when it was revealed she was too young) before she moved to Broadway and a featured role in the 1931 edition of George White's Scandals. By this time, she had adopted her stage name and first reached a radio audience on Rudy Vallée's The Fleischmann's Yeast Hour.
