Did You Know?
[about Mary Poppins
(1964)] I thought Walt Disney
hired me because I was such a great singer and dancer. As it turns out, he had heard me in an interview talking about what was happening to family entertainment. I was decrying the fact that it seemed like no holds were barred anymore in entertainment . . . That's why he called me in, because I said something he agreed with. And I got the part.
Once rapped and danced with Michele Lee
, about who would have won the People's Choice Awards in 1962.
