Help- Can't remember her name!


Recommended Posts

Hello, a couple of weeks ago, TCM played a short 20 minute comedy/musical clip about a young girl dancing around her apartment with her mother and the family doctor trying to figure out if she was crazy. The girl ended up having her own "big band" show where the orchestra was comprised of female musician. There was singing and dancing acts. Does anyone remember the name of this young lady! It's been driving me crazy! Thanks.
