The Hattie McDaniel You Don't Know

While I'm sure everybody here is aware of her Oscar-winning turn in Gone with the Wind, maybe some don't know that Hattie McDaniel spent her youth singing as a band vocalist. Here's a taste from Jean Harlow's last movie, Saratoga.

She shows up at the 2:35 mark.

I love Hattie McDaniels - she had great timing when delivering her lines.

I just wanted to let you know that I gave you a blog award here:

Congrats on the award, M.M. I love your response. It made me smile. You're such a terrific writer.

I haven't responded yet to mine. (Dorian awarded me.) Didn't realize I had to. Didn't read the fine print. :)
