• Alice FAYE - Got My Mind On Music

Blonde, cuddly, shapely, kind, she was not rated as one of the screen's great beauties. Detractors pointed to her forehead, saying it was rather high, that she had an upturned nose, her cheeks were prominent, almost plump and the chin was too long and jutted forward at an unflattering angle. She would often curl or twist her lip slightly whilst singing, which prompted a New York critic to write in 1938, "We've had close-ups of Miss Faye whose inability to speak or sing without throwing her mouth into trembles has begun to wear us down". However, about one feature there was no dissension - her vivid blue eyes, adorned with long velvet lashes that wafted like ostrich plumes in a gentle breeze. She could act, she could dance, and she photographed well. Most of all, she could sing. Darryl F. Zanuck, production boss at 20th Century-Fox Films declared, "No one can sell a song quite as well as Alice Faye", whilst the great Irving Berlin openly admitted: "I'd rather have Alice Faye introduce my songs than anyone else".
