Ethel Merman

Ethel Merman

Highest Rated: 83% Anything Goes (1936)

Lowest Rated: Not Available

Birthday: Jan 16, 1908

Birthplace: Astoria, New York, USA

This Broadway singing giant ("Girl Crazy," "Annie Get Your Gun," "Gypsy") had a brassy, larger-than-life star persona and a uniquely powerful, heart-felt voice and popularized songs by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, among others. Merman's belt-it-out rendition of Berlin's "There's No Business Like Show Business" has become the anthem of the entertainment industry. In occasional films from 1930, Merman undeniably brightened a number of features, several of which, like "Anything Goes" 1936, "Call Me Madam" 1953 and "There's No Business Like Show Business" 1954, were full-fledged star vehicles.
