Lorraine Bridges (born August 17, 1906) was discovered at an MGM studio party and went on to enjoy a steady career as an actress and vocal double before hitting the road touring with the USO during the tail end of WWII and into the 1950s.
•
She began her adult life as a model and singer before signing to MGM; making her debut alongside William Powell and Luise Rainer in ''Escapade'' (1935) in which she sang the number, ‘You’ll All I Need’. It quickly won her the publicity she needed; having been a jobbing actress/singer thus far (she made her film debut in "It’s Great to Be Alive" (1933) with Raul Roulien and Gloria Stuart at Fox Studios).
•
MGM were quick to use her vocal talents further, dubbing the singing voices of their resident A-list performers; perhaps most famously Billie Burke as Glinda, The Good Witch in "The Wizard of Oz" (1939), as well as lending her vocal talents – if somewhat heightened - to the diminutive ensemble of the Lullaby League.
•
During the 1940s, MGM put her soprano voice to further good use as a vocal double for Jeanette MacDonald in such musicals as "New Moon", "Bitter Sweet (both 1940) both starring Nelson Eddy, as well as on the musical comedy "Cairo" (1942), co-starring Robert Young and Ethel Walters. Her other film credits include: the western "Wagon Wheels" (1934) with Randolph Scott, as Louisa in "Night at the Opera" (also 1935) starring the Marx Bros., the Laurel & Hardy vehicle "Swiss Miss" (1938) opposite Della Lind, "The Chocolate Soldier" (1941) with Nelson Eddy and Risë Stevens, and "Seven Sweethearts" (1942) co-starring Kathryn Grayson. In 1943, she married Leonard Seeley, star of the St. Louis Municipal Opera.
•
During the 1950s, she worked with the USO, travelling to Korea where she performed alongside her sisters-in-law, Dorothy and Helen Blossom. “It was a tough grind,” she remembered in 1990. “But there was no doubt that the local G.I’s were more than grateful for us performers who were there to entertain them.” Lorraine died in December 1992, aged 87.

This is such a cute and good movie! Its about a family of con artists who, through circumstances, attach themselves to a wealthy elderly woman they want to steal her money from. But things happen. Transformed by love and friendship individually and as a family learn the value of kindness and become better people. It is the kind of sweet,sentimental lighthearted movie they didn't make anymore after WW2 (this came out in 1938) so it feels very of its era/a time that will never come again. It has a message and is genuinely a feel-good film. I recommend it! & its on Youtube. I first saw it on Netflix (dvd). A total gem 💜 #douglasfairbanksjr #paulettegoddard #rolandyoung #billieburke #janetgaynor #classichollywood #classicfilms #1930s #oldhollywood #classicmovies #movies #dinnerandamovie

JUDY GARLAND’S ORIGINAL DOROTHY LOOK WAS MUCH MORE HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR GIRL. 🐩🍨🍰🍭🍸🏰
Judy Garland’s Dorothy will always be remembered for her simple farm-girl look (and the subtle Emerald City makeover later in the movie), but when production first began on Oz, Garland was given the traditional Hollywood treatment. That meant a bouncy, blonde wig and tons of makeup. Fortunately, for the film’s legacy, Glam Dorothy didn’t last long. It was interim director George Cukor who did away with the wig and cosmetics, turning Dorothy back into what she was all along: A girl from the Kansas prairie.

Many movies have tried to top that magical, life-changing moment when farm girl Dorothy Gale (a 16-year-old Judy Garland) opens the door to Munchkinland and trades her drab, sepia-toned Kansas life for one of boundless Oz Technicolor—and as of 2015 they still haven’t succeeded. But as with any other classic movie, The Wizard of Oz has its share of triumphs, tragedies, and trivia.

Billie Burke as Glinda the Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz, 1939. Today is her birthday. She was a star of the theater who retired when she married showman Florenz Ziegfeld. Upon his death she learned she was broke so she went back to work, happily for us.  #oldhollywood #classicmovies #classicfilm #moviestars #classicfilmstars #classichollywood #classicmoviestars #billieburke #oldmoviestars #wehadfacesthen #thewizardofoz #glindathegoodwitch

#botd in 1884, actress Billie Burke is most famed for her performance as Glinda in THE WIZARD OF OZ. However, Burke started her on screen career in 1916, 23 years before the white witch met Dorothy!

Celebrating the anniversary of the birth of Billie Burke, Ziegfeld beauty and Hollywood character actress.

Today marks the 134th anniversary of the birth of Billie Burke, the stage, radio and screen star who is known to just about everyone as Glinda in "The Wizard of Oz" (1939). Strange to look back and realize she was in her fifties at the time! I saw her as so youthful. Burke did more than Glinda, and in fact was an Oscar nominee for "Merrily We Live" (1938). She was married to legendary producer. Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. (1867-1932) for nearly 20 years. Burke, whose film career spanned the Silent Era from 1914 on, ended with her appearance in 1960's "Pepe." She passed away in 1970. #billieburke #wizardofoz #thewizardofoz #glinda #glindathegoodwitch #movies #classicmovies #oscars #ziegfield #celebritybirthdays #gr8erdays

The Wizard of Oz (1939)🔹Topper (1937) 🔹 Topper Returns (1941
🔹The Great Ziegfeld (1936) 💐 Mary William Ethelbert Appleton "Billie" Burke, was an American actress, famous on Broadway and in early silent film, best known to modern audiences as Glinda the Good Witch of the North in the movie musical The Wizard of Oz. 💐 In 1937, Burke appeared in the first of the Topper films, about a man haunted by two socialite ghosts (played by Cary Grant and Constance Bennett), in which she played the twittering and daffy Clara Topper. Her performance as Emily Kilbourne in Merrily We Live (1938) resulted in her only Oscar nomination. 💐 Billie Burke was the wife of Broadway producer Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., of Ziegfeld Follies fame, from 1914 until his death in 1932. Her voice was unique in intonation, which she accentuated in her later character roles as dim-witted, spoiled society types. 💐 In 1936, MGM filmed a sanitized biopic of Florenz Ziegfeld (The Great Ziegfeld), a film that won Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Actress (Luise Rainer as Ziegfeld's common-law wife, Anna Held). William Powell played Flo Ziegfeld and Myrna Loy played Burke, which infuriated Burke because she was under contract to the studio and could have played herself, but MGM considered her too old to cast in the part of her younger self, despite her obviously having the look and mannerisms down perfectly otherwise.

Happy Heavenly Birthday to actress Billie Burke (1884-1970) 💖💖💖. The daughter of a circus performer, she spent her childhood touring the United States and Europe with her father’s job. Ultimately settling in London, she made her stage debut around the age of 19. Coming back to the States in 1910, she appeared in a few Broadway shows before making her film debut in “Peggy” (1916). She gained popularity and was soon a top earning actress before returning to Broadway in the early 1920s. Married to famed Broadway impresario Flo Ziegfeld (1867-1932), the couple lost their fortune in the 1929 stock market crash. Virtually starting over financially, Burke returned to the screen. Now in her 40s, she became more of a character actress and appeared in such classics as “A Bill of Divorcement” (1932), “Dinner at Eight” (1933), and “The Man Who Came to Dinner” (1942). Nominated for Best Supporting Actress for “Merrily We Live” (1938), she is best remembered for playing Glenda the Good Witch in “The Wizard of Oz” (1939). In addition to film work, she hosted her own radio program and made several television appearances before retiring in 1960. Her marriage to Ziegfeld lasted from 1914 until his death in 1932. The couple had one daughter, Patricia (1916-2008), who later wrote about her own life in the book “Ziegfeld Girl: Confessions of an Abnormally Happy Childhood”. Billie Burke passed away in 1970 at the age of 85 😞🙏🏼💖. #billieburke #happybirthday #heavenlybirthday #happyheavenlybirthday #oldhollywood #classichollywood #vintagehollywood #classicactress #vintageactress #oldhollywoodactress #stageactress #broadwayactress #academyawardnominee #glendathegoodwitch #theydontmakeemlikethatanymore

Actress and Comedienne Billie Burke. Mary William Ethelbert Appleton Burke (August 7, 1884 – May 14, 1970) was an American actress who was famous on Broadway, on radio, early silent film, and subsequently in sound film. She is best known to audiences as Glinda the Good Witch of the North in the movie musical The Wizard of Oz (1939).
Burke was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1938 for her performance as Emily Kilbourne in Merrily We Live and is also remembered for her appearances in the Topper film series. Her high-pitched, wavering, aristocratic voice was her trademark, which made her a frequent choice to play dim-witted, spoiled society types. Billie Burke was the wife of Broadway producer Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., of Ziegfeld Follies fame, from 1914 until his death in 1932. They had one child, a daughter, Patricia (October 23, 1916 - April 11, 2008). In 1936, MGM filmed a sanitized biopic of Florenz Ziegfeld (The Great Ziegfeld), a film that won Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Actress (Luise Rainer as Ziegfeld's common-law wife, Anna Held).

Born in this day: Billie Burke (1884-1970) best remembered for playing 'Glinda' in THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939). Burke said this was her favourite film role as it was closest to the glamorous parts she had played on stage in her youth. Although typecast as featherbrained matrons in most movies, Burke was a former Broadway leading lady and second wife of legendary impresario Florenz Ziegfeld. In the 1936 Best Picture Oscar winner THE GREAT ZIEGFELD Burke was played by Myrna Loy.

Her voice was unique in intonation, which she accentuated in her later character roles as dim-witted, spoiled society types. 💐 In 1936, MGM filmed a sanitized biopic of Florenz Ziegfeld (The Great Ziegfeld), a film that won Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Actress (Luise Rainer as Ziegfeld's common-law wife, Anna Held). William Powell played Flo Ziegfeld and Myrna Loy played Burke, which infuriated Burke because she was under contract to the studio and could have played herself, but MGM considered her too old to cast in the part of her younger self, despite her obviously having the look and mannerisms down perfectly otherwise.
