Georgia was what they called in those days "a dish." She can be spotted, blond and regal*, in the chorus of several MGM musicals, like DUBARRY WAS A LADY and then sang with the Kyser band on record and in films - THOUSANDS CHEER, etc. She had a throaty, husky sound and was well featured on such Kyser discs as "Paradise." Similar to her predecessor, Ginny Simms. XXXXX
