Bounding Betty the Incendiary Blonde. What better way to celebrate her Birthday but with her friends honoring her with a Star on the ‘Palm Springs Walk of Stars’ sidewalk in Palm Springs, California. Betty Hutton’s performance in the Preston Sturges film The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek is a favorite of mine. Many thanks to the Betty Hutton Estate for providing the picture above of one of my favorite scenes in the movie, Trudy Kockenlocker returning Norville’s car after a night of doing her patriotic duty and ‘saying goodbye to the boys’.
Happy Birthday Betty!
