Kathryn Grayson

Actress/singer Kathryn Grayson's career was supposedly launched when a custodian heard her singing alone on stage in an empty theater at the age of 12. She went on to a career in films and on Broadway, initially as a kind of anti-Deanna Durbin (who looked good in a sweater, but didn't always have the brows).

Grayson ended up not only engaged to Howard Hughes, but later as a guest star on Murder She Wrote. Today, at 85 years of age, she directs a large vocal arts program at Idaho State University in Pocatello.

Who said there are no happy endings in Hollywood?
