Betty Garrett passed away on February 12 at UCLA Medical Center. She was 91. She got her start singing and acting on Broadway and then signed with MGM in 1947 where she made several musicals. In the 70s she began working in television. I remember her best as Archie Bunker’s neighbor Irene Lorenzo and then as Laverne and Shirley’s landlady Edna Babish. This clip is from the movie “On The Town.” The song is “Come On Up To My Place.”
RIP Ms. Garrett.
