Happy Birthday Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds

 

Happy Birthday Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds

 

Actresses, singers, dancers, entertainers, and good friends Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds were born on the same day three years apart. Jane Powell was born April 1, 1929 and Debbie Reynolds was born April 1, 1932. Both signed as teenagers with different studios, Powell with MGM and Reynolds with Warner Brothers. After Warner Brothers didn’t resign Reynolds, she signed with MGM and by the mid-1950s was a major star. Some of her films of note were “Singin’ in the Rain” (1952), “Tammy and the Bachelor” (1957), and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” (1964). Powell also had great success with MGM, starring in classic musicals such as “Royal Wedding” (1951), with Fred Astaire, “A Date with Judy” (1948), with friend Elizabeth Taylor, and “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” (1954), with Howard Keel. The two beautiful and talented stars appeared in three movies together “Two Weeks With Love” (1950), “Athena” (1954), and “Hit the Deck” (1955). After their movie careers slowed, Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds both went on to enjoy successful stage and television careers.

Debbie Reynolds – A Pictorial

 
“I stopped making movies because I don’t like taking my clothes off. Maybe it’s realism but, in my opinion, it`s utter filth.” ~ Debbie Reynolds

“I think one of my favourite films is ‘Dark Victory’ with Bette Davis. Why? She was so wonderful in that film. And maybe I just want a good cry once in a while without having to go through a divorce.” ~ Debbie Reynolds when asked what her favourite movie was.

“Hit The Deck” (1955) Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Ann Miller

 

Music, Romance, Fun: Don’t Miss The Boat!!

 

"Hit The Deck" (1955)

“Hit The Deck” (1955)

“Hit The Deck” (1955) is a MGM musical romantic comedy starring Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds, Ann Miller, Tony Martin, Vic Damone, and Russ Tamblyn. Hit The Deck is about three sailors (Martin, Damone, and Tamblin) and three cuties (Powell, Reynolds, and Miller) who fight, squabble, run afoul of the shore patrol, and of course fall in love. With all the star power on display, singing and dancing to a parade of Vincent Youman’s tunes, Hit The Deck is another fun musical reminiscent of all the other great musicals of that era. Highlights include Ann Miller polishing the floor as ‘The Lady From The Bayou”, Tony Martin’s ‘More Than You Know’, and the rousing finale ‘Hallelujah’.
