  1. I just found this thread and wish to state my two cents. I have been a fan of Alice Faye since the early 1970s. As a young teenage girl at that time, I saw several of her films, including one with Shirley Temple, on Sunday afternoons broadcast by the WKRC television station out of Cincinnati, Ohio. I love all of Alice Faye's films (despite her shortened screen time in "Fallen Angel") but I would have to say that my favorite is "Lillian Russell". I also became a fan of June Haver in the 1970s. I have always felt I was born in the wrong era, as my movie preferences include such bio-pics as "Lillian Russell", as well as June Haver's "The Dolly Sisters" and "Look for the Silver Lining". I have since read about the real Dollies and felt such a connection. The story of Marilyn Miller's life was quite cleaned up for "...Silver Lining" but I also feel such a connection to her. There are others with whom I identify, and I do not understand it as I was born in the late 1950s and grew up in a small mideastern USA town. To me, Alice Faye was such a pure actress and singer. Besides that, the twinkle and sparkle in her eyes were entrancing and her smile and laugh were infectious. She played opposite each leading man so well in her films, that I cannot decide which actor would be favored. I never had the opportunity to meet her in this life, but enjoy every bit of conversation with her or about her from those who admired her which has been captured on film.
