The Glorious Ann Miller

Is anyone else a big fan of this lady? I remember seeing "Kiss Me Kate" as a child and I was so blown away by her number "Too Darn Hot", that I would watch it again and again. She had the world record for most taps a minute. Then there's Easter Parade: Ann Miller, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. So magical, it still gives me chills. When Ann Miller did that movie she was wearing a back brace because her husband had pushed her (pregnant) down the stairs and she broke her back. You'd never know it from her performance. I read her auto-biography "Ann Miller's High Life" and I really recommend it. It tells the story of her making her way through the golden age of Hollywood and beyond. She was such a remarkable lady, and such a talent!
