On this day in #history in 1921 singer Mary Small was born. She would entertain audiences for over 70+ years yet die penniless and a ward of the court. Her incredible life story is being told for the first time in a new documentary… The Little Girl with the Big Voice.
In honor of the passing of Mary Doyle Keefe today, 4/22/15, at the age of 92, “We Can Do It!” has been a phrase that’s rung throughout the hearts of many generations of American women, and we thank you
Here are two extremely rare photographs from the Paramount Theater, circa 1934, showing entertainers Milton Berle and Mary Small. Along with Eddie Cantor and other Vaudevillians, these entertainers really brought down the house in the 1930′s and helped create the foundations of entertainment as we know it.
