Legendary actress, Ann Miller, was born Johnnie Lucille Collier on Apr 12, 1923 in Nacogdoches, TX. Miller died at the age of 80 on Jan 22, 2004 in Los Angeles, CA and was laid to rest in Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, Los Angeles County, CA.
MINI BIO:Vivacious American dancer with very dark hair and a bright smile. In show business from an early age, she proved the most devastatingly fast tap dancer since Eleanor Powell, with enough vim and verve for the entire cast. One can never remember seeing the Miller waist exposed, but those fabulous legs were almost always in evidence in 20 years of musicals, throughout which she pleased audiences with her own brand of brassy sweetness. Three times married. (Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).

Claire Huddesen: You oughta feel proud that three sailors from the United States Navy got off the ship for one day, and what did they do? Were they thirsty for hard liquor? No. They were thirsty for culture. Were they running after girls? No. They came running to the museum to see your dinosaur. For months out at sea they were dreaming about your dinosaur.
