Debbie Reynolds

Given she was 84 it’s not too surprising that Debbie Reynolds has died. That it occurred the day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, must make it harder for her son Todd, though.

As Kathy Shelden in Singin’ in the Rain she was not overpowered, as given her youth she might have been, by the male leads Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor. Her performance in that alone would have secured her a place in public affection.

Here’s a song she recorded in 1959 that also became a big hit later for Engelbert Humperdinck. I prefer Debbie’s version.

Mary Frances “Debbie” Reynolds: 1/4/1932 – 28/12/2016. So it goes.
