Betty Garrett died this weekend. She is one of those funny gals of old Hollywood that I looked up to growing up. I would have been her if I was born in a different time and had more spunk.
I sing along with this musical whenever I hit New York, and one of my favorite songs from it, is Betty's. I wish I was this assertive. . . Just kidding. She is fantastic!
I love that she was in original Baby, It's Cold Outside (the first verse is reversed from this one and sang by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban in Neptune's Daughter).
You will be missed, Betty! I adored you in all of the movies I ever caught you in, and I wish I could have seen you on the stage!
