Actress Betty Hutton Dead at 86

Actress Betty Hutton passed away on March 11, 2007.

I was out of town and was unable to post anything on this happening.

Betty Hutton lived near Palm Springs, California until her death due to complications from colon cancer at 86 years of age.

She was a tremendous actress and singer who had a flair for comedy.

I first saw her in the movie "The Greatest Show on Earth" and absolutly fell in love with her.

I always try to watch any of her movies when they come on television.

Rest in Peace Ms. Hutton. You will be missed by myself and many others.

Her movies are listed below:

The Fleet's In (1942)
Star Spangled Rhythm (1942)
Happy Go Lucky (1943)
Let's Face It (1943)
The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1944)

An unforgettable actress with a legacy of highly entertaining films.

Yes she was. Most mention "Anne Get Your Gun" as their favorite Betty Hutton movie. I loved "The Greatest Show on Earth" and feel that was her best role.

She was a true star, unlike most of the stars of today. She could do it all: act, sing, dance, and be funny. What more could one want in a performer?
