Betty Garrett

Born: 23 May 1919, St. Joseph, Missouri, USA
Died: 12 February 2011, Los Angeles, California, USA

Betty Garrett was a singer, dancer and actress, especially in comedic roles, of the stage and screen from the late 1940s. She was contracted to MGM from 1947 to 1949. Her Hollywod career came to an end following the McCarthy trials and Communist scare of the 1950s. After this period, Garrett found film roles hard to come by and worked almost exclusively on the stage. In the 1970s she found fame again in the hit television series 'All in the Family' and 'Laverne and Shirley' and never was short of work from then on, appearing in hit stage shows with the occasional guest appearance on television.
