She bulldozed her way in Hollywood with spirit and spunk and good humor through a string of hits during the 40's and 50's to a singing Annie Oakley in Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun and that high flying trapeze artist in The Greatest Show On Earth. Her recordings demonstrated a boundless vocal range from zany romps to tear-stained ballads.
