Could You See It as a Betty Hutton?

Betty Hutton, the unbelievably energetic star whose energy and commitment were almost too big for the screen, has died at the age of 86.

Here she is singing her trademark song, "Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief."

And here she is in one of the linking scenes from the '40s all-star revue Star Spangled Rhythm. In these bits (bookending a Harold Arlen song performed by Mary Martin and Dick Powell), she meets up with her future Miracle of Morgan's Creek director, Preston Sturges.

I have nothing profound to say, just that I had barely finished ripping a Betty Hutton CD to my MP3 player when I wandered out here and found this. How sad.
