Jane Summerhays

One of Broadway’s true treasures, Jane Summerhays also brought her vital energy to Let the Games Begin, a third season episode of the George Romero created anthology series Tales From The Darkside.

Of course, Summerhays frequently gave veteran theater goers the chills. Who can forget her amazing work with Ann Miller in Sugar Babies and Eartha Kitt in The Wild Party? No one, that’s who!!!

Nicely, the footage below shows her in her prime from the original production of A Chorus Line.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Ann Miller

Her powerful Mulholland Drive landlady may have uttered the line “Ten bucks says you’re Betty,” but the divine Ann Miller, whose amazing career spanned decades, was always one in a million.

Movie buffs will always be grateful to the eccentric David Lynch for immortalizing Ann at the end of her career with a role in his mysteriously gothic masterpiece, but he was not the first auteur to take delight in Miller’s powerful presence. Dance maverick Busby Berkeley, long admired by such genre legends as Joe Dante and John Landis, provided this tap dancing marvel with one of her most captivating and original production numbers in the fun musical Small Town Girl.

Miller, long a believer in extraterrestrial powers – her final book was entitled Tapping into the Force, died at the age of 80 in 2004. But to her devoted fans and dedicated celluloid buffs, this expressive dynamo will live on forever!
