The song is “Rumble Rumble Rumble.” It is from the 1947 movie “The Perils Of Pauline” and if you are listening to it you are loving it. That is ape law!
This one is from the 1945 movie “The Stork Club” and it was a number one hit on the Billboard charts for Betty.
Betty Hutton was one of Hollywood’s “difficult women.” Man I love the “difficult women!” Most them had very troubled personal lives and Betty was no exception. Eventually mental health issues and addiction alienated her family, stole her career and left her destitute. But luckily Betty was “difficult.” She got sober, took a job in a Catholic church rectory and eventually the ninth grade dropout went back to school and got a masters degree then became a professor of comedic acting at Boston’s Emerson College. She passed away in 2007 at the age of 86. So to all the bold, brassy, bloody minded, beautiful, and other b-worded pioneers on my girl crush list I say thank you. By being “difficult,” you made it much easier for us modern career girls!
