Life has interrupted for the time being, so daily “31 Days of Oscar” recommendations are slowing down for the moment. But I must take a little time to remember the marvelous Kathryn Grayson, who passed away today at the age of 88.
The lovely and tremendously gifted Grayson may be best remembered as the temperamental Lilli Vanessi in 1953’s Kiss Me Kate, which teamed her once again with Howard Keel (after 1951’s remake of Show Boat). Her Lilli/Kate is fiery, heartfelt, and hilarious.
Personally, I adored her star-making turn in 1945’s Anchors Aweigh most of all.
It’s an overwhelming feeling of sadness, saying goodbye to another classic star this year.
Rest in peace, Ms. Grayson.

I love all the old movies. Actually think I will go watch some now! Stopping by to welcome you to the SITStahood, it is nice to meet you 🙂
I’ve not seen any of her movies – but what a glamorous time…
Welcome to SITS. We’re glad you joined 🙂
I loved her in Anchors Aweigh also. Is it just me or do they not make stars like this anymore??
Visiting from SITS.
