MINI BIO:Blonde, blue-eyed, wide-mouthed, tempestuous and temperamental singer, actress, comedian, and all-round female firecracker. Whether belting out a song in loud, if slightly husky, tones, cavorting, clowning, or emoting, she grabbed her audience by the scruff of the neck and never let go. Wrecked her film career when she walked out on her Paramount contract in 1952. There have been countless comebacks (and periods of psychiatric treatment) since. Began making Red Tomahawk (1967) but was replaced. Four times married and divorced. Sister of actress-singer Marion Hutton. (Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
