    Go on then, Moe...who would you name?

    And I suppose it can take a lifetime to become really good.....

    I'd really have to go back to the beginning. Let's start with one of my faves of all time [[because I just saw her on a Perry Mason episode). Believe it or not Bette Davis played a lawyer on Perry Mason. Raymond Burr supposedly was ill or had surgery & Davis was a huge fan of the show. So she guest starred in place of Burr.

    I can imagine......Bette Davis had a really interrogative facial expression she would use, which began to resemble granite as the years passed!

    But in her day, women would have needed to be focused, if not downright tough, to survive and get the best work they could - and deal with the competition....

    Quote for the Day:

    "You have to love dancing to stick to it.

    It gives you nothing back,
    no manuscripts to store away,
    no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums,
    no poems to be printed and sold,
    nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive."

    Remembering, on his Birthday: -

    [Mercier Philip Cunningham; 1919-2009; dancer and choreographer] -

    Westgrand, Bobby Vinton was born outside Pittsburgh [[Canonsburg) which is the same place another singer was born & was a barber .....& that was Perry Como.
    Ironically, the father of Bobby Vinton played with Como in an Italian band.

    It seems Ed Townsend took the song to Capitol Records, hoping Nat King Cole would record it.

    Capitol liked Ed's voice, signed him, and released his own version.

    Dick Clark and American Bandstand had just started. Ed Townsend appeared on the show, and got a Top 20 hit......
