Frank's second best

Frank and Rita

Rita's parents were dancers.  Her grandfather, who taught Cagney and Harlow, began to teach Rita when she was three; she continued with her uncle, another dance teacher, till she was eight, and while she was still under age in California was supporting her family at it in Tijuana.  As a kid she didn't like it much, but the way she relaxes into it at the height of her career shows how second-nature it was to her.  I'd rather see Astaire with her than with anyone else.  Look how happy she is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnfKmNRfLYU

Marilyn was such a sweet singer.  And she made an even sweeter singer's career when she told the owner of the Mocambo on Sunset Strip, which had never had a black performer before, that if he hired Ella Fitzgerald she, Marilyn, would come every night, meaning of course the place would be sold out.  And he did, and she did, and it was.
