Betty Hutton – Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief

Most musical fans point to Julie Andrews or Judy Garland as their favorite actresses. But I’m all about the underseen, underappreciated genius of Betty Hutton. This clip of her eye-popping (and eye-stretching) performance in a B-musical comedy serves as a light introduction to her style.

Hutton’s most notable film role was the part of Annie Oakley in the 1950 musical of “Annie Get Your Gun.” One of her best known songs (Blow a Fuse, later renamed It’s Oh So Quiet) was covered by Icelandic artist, Bjork ( Björk ).
