Betty Lynn

  1. Betsy Drake, Dancing in the Dark, 1949.   “If Betty Lynn makes a hit in Mother Is a Freshman,” said a Darryl Zanuck memo to producer George Jessel,“she will be sensational as the girl because she sings and dances in addition to being a sensational actress.” She did not hit, lost Juile – and yet, Drake had absolutely none of Lynn’s song, dance, acting attributes.   Terrible film proving that only MGM could make musicals, not  Fox.
