Happy #110thAnniversary Ethel Merman
••••••••
⭐️ #EthelMerman (born #EthelAgnesZimmermann, January 16, 1908 – February 15, 1984) was an #Americanactressandsinger. Known primarily for her distinctive, powerful voice and leading roles in musical theatre, she has been called "the undisputed First Lady of the musical comedy stage".
••••••••
Merman was hired as a torch singer at #LesAmbassadeurs, where the headliner was #JimmyDurante, and the two became lifelong friends.
••••••••
#AnythingGoes proved to be the first of five #ColePorter musicals in which Merman starred. In addition to the title song, the score included "#IGetaKickOutofYou", "#YouretheTop", and "#BlowGabrielBlow".
••••••••
Merman initially was overlooked for the film version of Anything Goes (1936). #BingCrosby insisted his wife #DixieLee be cast as #RenoSweeney opposite his #BillyCrocker, but when she unexpectedly dropped out of the project, Merman was cast in the role she had originated on stage.
••••••••
She returned to the stage in #StarsinYourEyes, which struggled to survive while the public flocked to the #1939NewYorkWorldsFair instead, and finally closed short of four months.
••••••••
#RichardRodgers and #OscarHammersteinII (#RodgersandHammerstein) invited #IrvingBerlin to replace him, and the result was #AnnieGetYourGun, which opened on May 16, 1946, at the #ImperialTheatre, where it ran for nearly three years and 1,147 performances.
••••••••
Over the next several years, Merman was featured in two films, the successful #ItsaMadMadMadMadWorld (1963, in which she played #MrsMarcus, the battle-axe mother in-law of #MiltonBerle) and the flop #TheArtofLove (1965).
••••••••
#WalterKerr in #TheNewYorkTimes described her voice: "Exactly as trumpet-clean, exactly as penny whistle-piercing, exactly as Wurlitzer-wonderful as it always was."
