Ann Miller

Well got home from a very busy day at work, good day to celebrate as I got a pay rise and what was in the post but this lovely postcard from the 1940's of Ann Miller waiting for me.

Can't wait to get it framed and added to my ever growing collection of postcards, photos and autographs of actresses/dancers from the 30's and 40's.

Ann Miller, if you don't know, was an amazing dancer (she also sang and acted in many films) who was discovered by THE Lucy Ball no less at the age of 13 when she was dancing at the "Black Cat Club" in San Francisco (she lied about her age saying she was 18). She was famous for her incredible tap speed as a tap dancer with the reported speed of 500 per minute!

Here she is in action..... Don't you just love the outfit?
