Memorial for Betty Garrett Part 2 on The Lynne Show with Lynne Bernfield

Memorial for Betty Garrett - Part 2
The second half of my interview begins with Betty talking about the impact that her husband’s decision to talk to the House on American Activities Committee had on their lives. She describes the rejection they experienced and how it caused them to create a cabaret act which they toured in Europe and Las Vegas – where ironically the blacklist didn’t exist. She also talks about their courtship and marriage (she doesn’t believe in love at first sight, but that’s what happened); and describes her first hand experience with the dictatorial nature of the movie studio system. Listen to the life of a courageous, creative and candid woman and hear her singing with Gene Kelly, Jimmy Durante and her husband Larry Parks
