Debbie Reynolds

Actress, singer, and entertainer; one of the last golden Age movie stars -- via Variety. AKA Mary Frances Reynolds. She was one of a kind. She made her first film in 1948, at 16. She was a natural at song and dnane, and co-starred in "Singin' in the Rain," at 19. Sweet and wholesome in image, she played winsome young girls such as Tammy in "Tammy and the Bachelor." She never really tackled dark drama -- her biggest later films were entertainments such as "How the West Was Won," "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," and "The Singing Nun." As times changed, she moved to live entertainment. She was a pistol.
