RIP. Star of stars. Hollywood/Broadway. One of the reasons I was inspired to get into showbiz.
She was known for her distinctive voice and sultry looks throughout the golden age of Hollywood and Broadway.
As a young boy growing up in Australia, my mother purchased a vinyl 33rpm record of Applause, which I listened to intently and repeatedly imagining the action on stage during the songs — I directed and designed the show in my head while listening.
